- Method - How to make Dal Poori Recipe :

Wash the moong dal with water and soak it for 2 hours. Wash the soaked moong dal once more and put it in the mixer along with green chilli, coriander leaves and ginger. Pour little water or no water and make a paste. Put coriander powder and salt into the paste and mix it well.
Sieve the flour in a bowl and put curd, carom seeds, salt and oil into it. Mix the ingredients well with the flour and knead it with water. Cover the dough and leave it for half an hour to set.
Take a small portion of the dough and roll it into a ball. Keep the ball on the rolling board and roll it to make a flat disc. Put 1 or 1 1/2 tea spoon of dal mixture on the poori and spread it evenly.
Heat oil in a pan. Take a tiny portion of the dough and put it into the oil to check whether it is heated appropriately or not. If the dough rises up in few seconds and starts to float the the surface, then the oil is perfectly heated to fry the poori. Now put the poori into the oil. The surface with the dal should be facing the pan while putting it in the pan.
When the surface turns light brown in colour and rises up, turn the side of the poori and fry till it gets brown from the other side too. Take out the poori from the pan and keep it on a plate over the napkin. Prepare all the pooris in the same manner.
