But how does the poori puff?
Is there air inside? Who fills the poori with air?
Aditi and Aarav blow air into balloons, to make them puff up. Pa uses a pump to fill air in the tyre of his bicycle.

But Ma doesn’t seem to use any of these methods to puff the poori. She just fries them and they puff. Amazing!
