Rajgira Ki Poori

Rajgira Ki Poori is a type of Indian fried bread made from Rajgira flour (Amaranth flour), which is typically used as a fasting food in Hinduism. The dough is made by mixing Rajgira flour, salt, and water and then rolled into small balls and fried.

Here is a simple recipe for Rajgira Ki Poori:


  • 1 cup Rajgira flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Water, as needed
  • Oil for deep-frying


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the Rajgira flour and salt.
  2. Slowly add water to the flour mixture and knead it into a soft and smooth dough.
  3. Let the dough rest for 15-20 minutes.
  4. Divide the dough into small balls.
  5. Roll each ball into small poori using a rolling pin.
  6. Heat the oil in a deep pan or kadhai over medium heat.
  7. Carefully place the poori in the hot oil and press it down with a slotted spoon.
  8. Fry the poori until it is golden brown and puffed up, turning it over occasionally.
  9. Remove the poori from the oil and place it on a plate lined with paper towel to remove excess oil.
  10. Serve hot or warm with a side of pickle or chutney.

Note: You can also add a pinch of carom seeds (ajwain) for added flavor and you can also add some more ghee to the dough to make it more rich.
