Sweet Poori

Sweet Poori

Sweet poori is a simple delicious sweet that looks like a crispy flaky juicy mini poori nicely dipped in sugary syrup. We usually called it as Pheni but might also have different names in other languages as per their region.

India is well known in preparing a variety of sweets. Every region, festival, functions have its sweet delicacy which has its own uniqueness in taste and flavor. Though sweet poori originally belongs to the Indian cuisine, today it’s a part of the global taste also. The sweet poori makes a perfect side dish and is prepared in many ways.

Sweet poori is one of the most delectable sweets and can be part of the Diwali sweets and also can be made on a pleasant evening to treat your family and friends. Easy to make they would surely like it. Kids would also enjoy as it’s juicy and crunchy while eating. For preparing the sweet poori; in a mixing bowl mix maida and add a pinch of salt (this enhances the flavor of the sweetness). Add sufficient water to make medium soft dough and keep it aside for 15 mins. Now take some dough and roll in to a big thin chapatti. Mix rice flour and ghee together to form a nice paste and spread it evenly on the big chapatti. Sprinkle some all purpose flour (maida) over it and roll the chapatti and cut it into small dumplings. Take each dumpling and press in the center and roll it to a size of small puri. While rolling you should be able to see the layers.

In a deep frying pan, add oil to heat. Deep fry these small pooris. In another bowl add sugar and water and boil to make medium thick sugar syrup (the consistency of sugar syrup should be the same that you make for coating the jalebis). Dip the deep fried puris in the sugar syrup on both sides and transfer it onto a plate. Instead of sugar syrup you can also sprinkle powdered sugar when the pooris are hot so that the sugar powder sticks to the pooris. The sweet pooris are ready to serve. A perfect sweet poori would be really juicy and delicious to taste.

For making the sweet poori recipe, do watch the video that shows the method of obtaining the layered poori. The layers when fried would give a nice flaky texture and crispness to the puri. It also helps sugar syrup to penetrate into the layers of the poori to make it soft and juicy. Sweet puris are really irresistible and mouth watering! I am sure your family and friends would enjoy the taste when you make and offer. View the instructions at:
