Simple, yet delicious Ajwain Poori – puffed Indian flat bread flavored with carom seeds. Step-wise picture recipe to make Khasta Ajwain Puri.
I made some crispy Ajwain Poori to go with my Dhaba Style Aloo Matar. Ajwain Poori is puffed Indian flat bread made with whole wheat flour, flavored with carom seeds and other spices. I usually don’t make Pooris at home, that quite often. In fact, I make them so occasionally just twice or thrice in a year that it is almost equivalent to festive food at our house-hold. So when I mentioned that I was going to make Ajwain Poori to go with Aloo Matar, the husband was super happy 😀
It is really simple to make Khasta Ajwain Poori at home, just a few ingredeints – whole wheat flour, ajwain/carom seeds, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, salt and water. It is a nice variation to the plain pooris that most of us make at home. These Ajwain Pooris are crispier than the usual poori and are perfect to dunk into some semoi-watery gravy. These are perfect on their own with some hot ginger tea too!
