2 cups of whole wheat flour and one cup semolina flour. Knead it into a lil tough or hard dough as compared to normal roti dough. You can add salt, cumin seeds, coriander leaves, green chilli etc as per your taste. Jugni prefers it to be plain flour dough. Deep fry round pooris and enjoy with yummy aalo.

You can also have poori with chole (chickpea curry masala) or aam ka achaar (mango pickle) or Sooji Halwa. 

Jugni Tip – It is a high calorie dish so it is preferred to have it in breakfast. You will have the entire day to digest it. Also, ginger cardamom tea is preferred after having aalo poori for digestion. Lastly, you will surely feel sleepy after having this in your meal, so enjoy it on a lazy sunday. 🙂 My Jugnu demands it every month, he is a big fan.
