  • 1 tbsp Red Chili Powder
  • Salt to taste
  • Water, for kneading
  • Oil, for deep frying


  • Mix all the mentioned ingredients thoroughly (except oil) in Singhara flour.
  • Since Singhara flour is not like the normal wheat flour, you need not add too much of water while kneading it.
  • After kneading the flour well, take small portion of the flour and make it into a small kneaded ball, in your palm. Then, shape the kneaded ball it into a puri.
  • Heat oil in a frying pan and fry poori, until it becomes dark brown in color.
