Khari Poori

Khari Pooris are deep-fried cookies made with a combination of whole wheat and white flour. Gujaratis prepare Khari pooris or salty pooris often studded with crushed black peppercorns. These pooris have been a standard ‘journey food’ in India for centuries. They are generally eaten as snacks, accompanied by lassi, buttermilk, or tea. They can be eaten plain, or they may be smeared with hot pickles or sweet chutneys.
