Recipe for Bajre- Methi ki Poori :

Dry or Fresh Fenugreek (Methi) Leaves (1 tbsp)
1 and half cup medium hot water to knead the dough.
Add all the above ingredients and mix well, knead the dough with medium hot water carefully as not to burn your hands .
Keep the dough aside for 10-15 minutes.
Meanwhile put the oil in Kadhai ( Indian Wok ) on medium hot flame.
Take some dough into your hand , apply some oil and make a small ball .
Press it with help of hands and try to flatten it .
Once you flatten it with your hands, put some oil on the rolling surface and lightly press it with a rolling pin to even out .
It is a bit difficult to roll out Bajra roti or poori since there is no gluten present in the Bajra , we have added some normal flour in the beginning to make it a bit easier to roll out the poori.
Put it into the oil and fry , till you see both sides golden .
Similarly roll out the remaining poori and fry them.
