How to Make Indian sweet semolina poori
Chef Sanjay Thumma shows how to cook a sweet semolina-filled poori in this simple video tutorial. Heat one and a half cups of water to nearly boiling. When heated, add one cup of semolina. When the mixture begins to thicken, add one and a half cups of sugar to the mix. Add some cardamom powder and cook slowly until the mixture becomes very thick. Let the mixture cool and form into small dumplings. In a separate bowl, take whole-wheat flour and add oil and water in a well in the middle until you have a medium-stiff dough. Take a ball of the filling and a ball of dough the same size. Roll the dough out into a small circle and stuff with the filling, then roll it flat again. Fry the poori in hot oil until golden and bubbly, or fry on a griddle if you want a slightly different taste. When done, you have a simple, sweet Indian treat to enjoy as a snack or at the end of a meal.
