Pooris from Ridge gourd Chutney.
Ridge gourd Chutney: : 1/2 cup.
Wheat flour : 2 cups.
Jeera : 1/2 Tea spoon.
  Salt : to taste.
Oil : 1 cup . ( To fry).
Method :
Mix Ridge gourd chutney , wheat flour, salt, and jeera together. Use little water if required.  Prepare a dough and make it into small balls. Roll these balls in to small pooris.
Keep a frying pan on the fire and put oil. Heat the oil and Fry rolled  pooris in hot oil  and serve with a cup of curd or any gravy dish.
Note : Do not add much water to the dough while preparing the dough.  Do not add any ghee or oil since coconut has the oil substance . Fry the pooris on medium heat to get the good result.  Do not use any stale chutney since it gives a foul smell and it is not good for health. Can use garam masal powder or red chilly powder tothe mixture  while mixing the dough.  It gives a different taste and remember lots of spice is not good for health too.
2 to 3 serves.
