what is Leftover Dal Poori Recipe?

Dal poori is a soft and moist poori flavoured with some cumin seeds and coriander. This particular recipe uses cooked dal. So the pooris have the goodness as well as the flavour of lentils.

I have prepared Dal Poori Recipe with leftover moong dal. You can even use tuvar dal or chana dal. Rather they are better choices for dal poori.

I have kept the recipe very simple… by adding only some coriander for freshness and cumin seeds as they enhance the flavour of dal. Dal pooris do not dry out… so they are a great tiffin recipe or lunch box recipe.

How To Make Dal Poori

1. In a bowl add 2 cup whole wheat flour, salt to taste, 1/2 tsp red chilli powder, 1/4 tsp turmeric powder, 1/2 tsp cumin seeds and handful of chopped coriander.


2. Prepare smooth semi soft dough using 1 cup leftover dal. Tip: Add dal gradually… the quantity required depends upon the consistency of dal.


3. Cover the dough and leave it for 10-15 minutes. After 10 minutes knead it once again.


4. Divide the dough into balls and roll into pooris.


5. Heat sufficient oil in a deep pan. Once it is hot add pooris. Press them slightly so that they puff up. Flip and cook from the other side too.


6. Serve dal pooris with a cup of tea or any pickle or tomato ketch up. It can also be served with any dry dishes or gravies.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
