2. Add water little by little and knead until a soft dough is obtained.

3. Cover the dough and rest it for 10-15 minutes.

4. Mix and press the dough again.

5. Divide the dough into small balls of equal portions.

6. Make round balls and on the rolling board roll the dough into small circular shaped disc. Use very little dough for dusting.

7. The thickness of the poori should be thin.

8. Similarly make pooris of the remaining dough balls.

9. Heat oil for deep frying.

10. Drop one poori into the oil. Allow the poori to start rising up slowly. Once it rises up slightly touch at the corners with a ladle for it to puff up. When the poori puffs up, flip and cook the other side till it becomes golden brown in colour.

11. Reduce the flame as the next poori may burn if the oil is too hot. Similarly deep fry rest of the pooris.

Serve Hot Banana Poori with any Aloo masala, kurma, etc.
