Sesame pooris with red hot chutney
The weather started turning chill and sometimes rainy. It calls for hot, crisp food as usual. On one such rainy day I made these pooris for breakfast. Last 2 weeks were pretty hectic at work front and could not spend much time with the family. Relaxing at home during weekend makes me try new recipes. This one is a success 🙂
Sesame seeds are very lovable. I love the nutty taste they give that too the aroma released when you dry roast it is simply excellent. It can flavor both sweet and savory dishes. These pooris are my trials and everybody at home liked it.
Whole wheat flour – 1 cup
Plain flour – 1/4 cup
White sesame seeds – 1/4 cup

Mix the whaet flour and plain flour and sieve. Add salt to the mix. Dry roast the sesame seeds till they turn light brown and give a wonderful aroma. Add this to the flour mix and adding water to it little at a time make a soft pliable dough. Keep aside for 10 minutes.
Divide it into marble sized balls and roll out small pooris.
