Poori-fication Of The Soul

21 Sep

Poori Set Meal at Thohirah Restaurant.

Friday night dinners just got better! A nice one with family too.

From what I read so far, Poori is an unleavened bread from India. What that means is that the dough doesn’t have any leavening agents in it, like yeast. And no need to let the dough rise like most breads.

The most interesting thing about Poori is that it puffs up when fried, and you will end up with a dome-shaped bread filled with air. Some prefer to prick the dough just before frying so that the steam escapes and the Poori won’t puff up. But where is the fun in that? I need volume. I need puffiness!!

It is served, in this case, with a potato masala, chickpea curry and another curry (I don’t know what?). Tastes really really good.

We frequent this place quite a lot. Situated at Jalan Kayu, Singapore, and near our home. A quaint little area with a strip of eateries lining a two-lane road.
