Strawberry Pooris

       
          Whenever I get a box of strawberries, if it is sweet, it gets done in one or two days but if turns out sour, nobody wants it. Either I have to make milkshakes or mix it in a fruit salad or dip it in chocolate sauce. This time, when the berries turned out to be sour I didn't want to make any of the above. I just came up with this idea of making some pooris and rolling them with a strawberry filling. One thing led to the other, and finally I ended up in making mini pooris, topped with some strawberry filling. Believe me, the taste was so addictive, that I ended up gobbling a few of them before even I took the pictures..

Need To Have
  • Whole Wheat Flour - 1/4 cup
  • All Purpose Flour - 1/4 cup
  • Semolina Or Sooji - 1 tablespoon 
  • Warm Milk - just enough to make the dough
  • Strawberries - 10
  • Sugar - 3 tablespoons
  • Coarsely Ground Walnuts - 2 tablespoons
  • Grated Coconut - 2 tablespoons
  • Mawa Or Milk Powder - 3 tablespoons
  • Cardamom Powder - 1/4 teaspoon
  • Red Food Color - 4 drops
  • Salt - a pinch 

Method
          Make a stiff dough with both the flours, sooji, salt and milk. Keep it aside, while making the strawberry topping. Coarsely powder the walnuts, I used the food chopper, and make a coarse paste with six of the strawberries and chop the remaining four of them. Mix the nuts, berries (both puree and pieces), sugar, grated coconut, put it on the stove and keep stirring till you get a thin jam consistency (just a few mins). Then, add in the mawa powder, mix everything well till you get a thick mixture (like a spread). Remove, add the cardamom powder and the food color. Now roll out the dough into a big circle (shape doesn't matter), cut out small pooris with a circle cookie cutter and deep fry them. Spread the strawberry carefully, garnish with some chopped strawberries and serve.

Note
Increase or decrease the sugar depending on the sweetness of the strawberries.
Food color is optional, it's just that when strawberry is cooked with the other ingredients, the color becomes very dull.
