Peas Poori

Peas poori is a very tasty and easy to make dish. It can be had for lunch or dinner or even as an evening snack.


Green peas (batani) 100 gms
Green chilly 1
Ginger 1 tsp
Coriander 4-5 strands
Wheat flour 2 cups
Refined cooking oil 1 cup
Salt to taste


Grind coarsely the green peas, green chilly,ginger and coriander. Coarse means the peas should just be broken and not made into a paste. (It is optional to add a few strands of Mint leaves (pudina) too for the taste.)

Take a vessel and add the 2 cups of wheat flour (godam pindi/godi hittu). To this add the green peas mix, a pinch of salt and water and mix the dough of roti/poori dough consistency.(It is optional here to add ¼ cup of finely chopped onions and a tsp of cumin(jeera).)

Roll the pooris and fry them in oil. Hot and delicious Peas pooris are ready.

Since the Peas poori already has green peas and other veggies, it can be had just like that. But Since summer has begun, it is preferable to have the peas poori with curds or any of the raithas including boondi raitha. But incase the preference is for Spicy food then just bite a green chilly with every helping of the poori for the additional spice. For first timers while eating mirchi every bit should be dipped in salt, then it will not make it too hot and also gives the chilli kick.Of course any of the curries also go well with peas poori since it has just green peas.
