  1. Addition of rava/sooji/semolina in the wheat flour helps to make puffy poori.
  2. Adding a dash of ghee helps to keep the puri soft.
  3. Unlike chapathi dough, poori dough has to be tight and thick. 
  4. Dough should be kneaded well to make it smooth and crack free.
  5. Resting time is not necessary for the dough.
  6. Rolling should be thicker than roti to get puffed poori.
  7. Do not dust too much in flour. Oil will get more sediments.
  8. Always dust off the excess flour coated in the rolled poori by patting between your hands.
  9. Oil temperature should be checked before dropping the poori.
  10. If oil temperature is less, puri will sank in oil and doesn't puff up.
  11. Oil should not be smoky hot too. Color of poori will become dark.
  12. Poori should not be stacked one over the other.
