Baked methi/fenugreek leaves Poori/Puri

Baked Pooris


Baked puris are guilt free and healthy version as they are normally fried in Oil.

Using fenugreek leaves add flavour and they are mixed with flour to make nutritious snacks. It does cool body and has a laxative nature also. Eating fenugreek leaves at least three times a week would help you develop good health with proper digestion. As fenugreek leaves are iron rich, eating it regularly would help meet your iron requirements.

So enjoy baked puris as a snack for breakfast as a main course with some side dish like Jalfrezi (Recipe link click here).

  1. These sound great, and I love the idea of adding funegreek! Do you serve these alongside a meal, or with something in them?


  2. Ah, now I see you are picturing the pooris. Looks interesting, with several new-to-me ingredients. I know it is possible to fry tortillas without oil; would it also be possible to fry these with little or no oil as well?
