Hi Kamala, your Poori looks perfect. I don't make poori at home, because my husband doesn't eat anything deep fried, so I feel lazy to do it just for myself.

Do you remember one Manorama/S V sekar movie, where they will eat chicken biriyani just hanging a chicken and a chicken picture in front of them. I have to eat pooris like that only. I think I should use your picture for it.
