This is a Madhur Jaffrey recipe.

Very easy to make. For 6 poori:

3/8 cups each of AP and whole wheat flours
1/2 tsp salt
about 1 Tbsp vege oil
1/4 to 3/8 cup water.

Mix flours and salt together. Drizzle in oil and work in with fingers until you have a breadcrumb looking mixture. Start with 1/4 cup water and mix until you have a fairly stiff dough. Knead on a lightly floured board 5-6 minutes, form a ball, place in a plastic bag and let rest for at least 30 minutes. Divide dough ball into 6 equal pieces, form small balls, flatten and roll out each ball into a 5 to 5-1/2 inch disk. Fill a pan with about 1-1/2 inches vege oil and heat until "very hot" (a direct quote, no temp given). One at a time, lay the disks into the oil and make short quick striking movements with a utensil (I used a metal spoon with holes). It should start blowing up like a balloon pretty much immediately. Turn over to cook the top side and continue to turn until light golden brown all over. Drain and eat while still hot.
