In a large bowl, add semolina, all-purpose flour, salt and a pinch of baking soda. Mix together and knead the dough with water. The dough consistency should be medium neither too hard nor too soft.
Rest the dough for 20-25 minutes.
Roll the dough out until thin, rolling from all sides to create a large circle. Then, take a small round cookie cutter and cut circles, each around 4-5 cm.
Cover the shaped pooris with a damp cloth and do the same for the rest of the dough.
Heat the oil in a deep frying pan and fry the pooris on medium flame. While frying, gently press the pooris with the back of a ladle, allowing the dough to puff up. Flip the poori and fry until both sides are crispy and golden.
Transfer the fried poori to a plate or bowl lined with paper towels.
Either serve right away or let cool and store in an airtight container to snack on later!
