Pooris are tasty, whatever you may eat them with! The smell of pooris frying! Oh, so wonderful. The sight of pooris swimming in hot oil! One look at golden, crispy, hot, puffed pooris and Aditi and Aarav rush to get the roundest and the most puffed ones.
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!
Aditi and Aarav decide to observe, ask questions and find answers the next time pooris are made at home.
