Pooris (Puris) are deep-fried puffed whole wheat breads. They are eaten for breakfast or as a snack or light meal. Pooris taste great with savory curry or bhaji. They are also eaten by Gujaratis as part of the thali. They taste great with vegetable dishes. They should be perfectly golden in color and puffy. They are best eaten immediately. A variant of puri is batura - made from refined flour and is leavened with yeast resulting in a softer and fluffier fried bread.
