Puri is one of the famous dishes of North India. When we have any festival or function here, then we definitely make poori, don’t we?

It is not necessary that we make poori in wheat flour only. In the recipe I am telling you today how to make puffy poori using refined wheat flour.

By the way, we make poori in many ways like- Namkeen Puri, Spinach Puri, Aloo Puri, Sattu Puri, etc.

But if we talk about maida puri, it’s different altogether. It is very soft and tasty.

Many people say that they do not know how to make maida completely soft, so today I would like to give some suggestions to make it so that your poori will become very soft.

If you make puri once in this way, then you will never face any problem in future.

So, without much ado, let’s get started.

Cook Mode

Keep the screen of your device ON


  • All purpose flour – 1 cup

  • Water – 1/3 cup

  • Refined – as required


  • Take a mixing bowl with maida in it. Add 2 teaspoons of refined oil to it. Mix it well with the palm of both your hands. It has to be mixed in such a way that the refined oil gets mixed well in all the flour.
  • Now we will add water little by little, and knead the flour well and prepare a very hard dough.
  • Then cover it with a plate and leave it for 5 to 10 minutes.
  • By then, we will put the refined oil in a pan to heat. Keep the stove on, on medium flame to heat the oil.
  • Now we will make small balls out of the kneaded flour, and roll them in the shapes of a poori.
  • Keep in mind that it has to be rolled in such a way that it is uniform from all sides and not too thin.
  • If the poori is too thin, it will not be able to become soft.
  • Now we will put it comfortably in the hot refined and press it lightly with a spoon from all sides so that it becomes easy to swell.
  • When it becomes light brown in color after being deep fried from one side, then turn it over and fry it from the other side as well. Finally, take it out in a plate and serve it.


  • I hope you have liked this recipe very much, you will not face any problem in making it, if you face any problem related to this recipe, then you can ask me anytime in the comment box.
  • If you want, you can also add a little salt to it.
