Mini Methi Poori / Methi Puri Recipe - Indian Breakfast Dish

            Puri / Poori is a deep fried puffed bread, generally made with wheat or maida, salt and water. Additionally, in this recipe, I used  fresh fenugreek leaves (methi) from my garden. Here the dough is then kneaded, rolled out into a circle and then deep fried in a hot oil. It tastes great if eaten hot, puffed up with a crispy outside and a moist inside. Though it starts to lose its puffiness and becomes chewy, when cold, poori is still tasty when eaten that way . It is often served for weekend breakfast. Good accompaniment for poori is potato based curries, dal and channa masala.
