Poori is a famous festival cuisine, and in general made during the some events like festival or guest are invited for lunch or dinner. You would have made normal Pooris many times, however here I am going to make a Poori which has healthy ingredients like spinach and beetroot. Kids love this poori as it is colorful. This goes very well with Channa Masala (Chole) or any Paneer curry.
