Knead well to form a soft dough.Dust the working surface with rice flour .Take a small portion(lemon size) of the dough and roll it to form a small disc.Make sure it is not too thick or too thin.( if you find it difficult to roll the dough this way,place the dough on a greased plastic sheet.Place another greased plastic sheet on top and using a rolling pin roll to form a small disc.)
Cut to a perfect round shape using a lid/cutter.(However,this step is optional)
Heat oil in a pan and deep fry the poori.Gently press the poori on one side with a slotted ladle so that it puffs up .
Flip the poori and cook over the other side till golden brown.Transfer the poori on to a kitchen towel.Repeat with the remaining dough.
