Poori - fried puffed bread

Yield: 8 servings

Measure Ingredient
2 cups All-purpose flour
1 teaspoon Salt
¼ pounds Butter
1 cup Water (approx)
Vegetable shortening OR oil
For deep frying

Sift the flour and salt into a bowl. Using 2 knives or a pastry cutter, cut in the butter until small particles are formed. Stir in the water to make a soft dough. Put the dough on a lightly floured board and knead until it is smooth and holds together. Roll out the dough very thin with a lightly floured rolling pin. Cut the dough into 5-inch circles. Heat the vegetable shortening or oil until it reaches a temperature of 370 F. Fry a few pieces of dough at a time for 2 to 3 minutes, turning once until lightly browned. Drain. Serve hot. Makes 8 to 10. From: Marianne Riolo-Minahan Date: 28 Mar 94 Submitted By GAIL SHIPP On 03-28-95
