Vrat Aloo Poori Tips

·   Rajgiri flour is used to give thickness to the curry, but it’s totally optional and you can avoid it.

·   Prepare the dough only when you are ready to fry pooris, otherwise salt and potato will make the dough soggy.

·   If you are making pooris in large quantities, you can prepare the dough in small portions and fry poori to be on safer side.
