Farali Poori | How to make Rajgira Ki Poori for Vrat

Farali Poori

Farali Poori or Fasting Pooris made with Rajgira Atta is a popular dish made during fasting season in North Indian. These Vrat dishes are rightly balanced to manage through the fasting period.

While different grains are used to make Vrat Dishes, I used Rajgira Atta to make Pooris. Since its Gluten free grain, I used boiled Potatoes to bind the flour, spice with extra spice powders to make an interesting dish.

You can make this Vegan too by not adding the ghee to the dough or frying it in regular Cooking oil instead of ghee.

This is one of the popular dishes that are perfect for Navrathri fasting, this gluten free and protein rich grain makes a wholesome meal. So when you are looking for Upvas Dishes, you can make this easier.

Kneading and rolling out the dough is slightly time consuming as its gluten free, the mashed potato will surely help. I added spices to the dough and made pooris. I remembered these pooris when I had made dishes from Maharashtra, however when I checked these Farali Pooris are common across the different North Indian States.

When I was searching for Indian Flatbread starting with F, there was no choice at all, except Fulkas and Frankie, both of which I already have. I know Farali will be a popular keyword for the day!

So Farali Poori is my choice in the A to Z Flatbread and More, where I am doing AtoZ Indian Flatbreads. If you want to know whats F in the AtoZ Dosa Varieties, check out.

  1. The addition of spices in the poori makes it definitely interesting. I have never tried making poori out of gluten free flours as I don’t have the confidence. Adding potato is a nice trick to help with the rolling..

  2. Today is definitely farali day!! Love these pooris…adding potatoes must make it so soft and the spices would make it flavourful! Looks delicious!!

  3. Lovely pooris there, adding potatoes to Rajgira flour will definitely gives an excellent texture and softness to this pooris na.. Looks fabulous and quite a satisfying meal with some spicy curries.

  4. Rightly said, it was Farali day!! I am still looking for this Rajgira flour in teh shops here just to try out these pooris.THe pooris look like they could go with a cup of coffee as well!
