How to make Makmal Poori

  1. Take wheat flour and salt in a bowl and mix well adding water little by little. Knead into smooth dough and keep aside for 10 minutes.
  2. Prepare sugar syrup by boiling sugar and water. Let the sugar dissolve and become sticky. The one string consistency is not needed. The syrup has to be in gulab jamun syrup consistency.
  3. Take roasted gram, brown sugar and cardamom in a blender and blend into coarse powder. Transfer to a bowl and add desiccated coconut to it. Mix everything and this is the filling powder.
  4. Now take small ball out of the dough and dust some flour. Roll into thick circles like the size of chapathi.
  5. Place 3 tsp of filling at the centre and close the dough from other side. Seal the edges and using a fork make impressions at the edges. Repeat for remaining dough.
  6. Heat oil and drop the stuffed poori one at a time. Cook until it changes color. Flip the other side using ladle and cook for a minute. The color has to be golden brown on both sides.
  7. Remove from oil and drain excess oil. Soak it in sugar syrup for few minutes or pour the sugar syrup into the pooris.
  8. Garnish with chopped nuts and serve.
