  • You can add more sugar if you like more sweet taste.But color of poori would be dark. 
  • Do not use water to make the dough.Add little more curd if needed.
  • Resting time of minimum 6 hours is needed. Overnight is also fine.
  • If you rest the dough for lesser time, Poori will come out hard and chewy.
  • For variations you can add equal quantity of wheat flour and maida. But poori comes out bit dense in texture.
