badam puri or badami poori recipe

Karnataka style badam puri or badami poori recipe explained with step by step pictures. This is an authentic and traditional sweet recipe from Karnataka. This crispy Badam puri or badami poori is prepared using maida (all purpose flour), ghee and sugar. Trinagular pooris are deep fried and dipped in sugar syrup to get crispy badam puris, which are soft from inside.

One interesting fact about Karnataka style badam puri or badami poori is, it does not contain badam or almonds. As I know this sweet is in practice across malnad, Mysore and Bangalore region of Karnataka from ages. Recently I have also come across people adding badam or almond in Mangalore region of Karnataka (may be they have adopted from other states of India, where adding badam is in practice). I have tasted both with almond and without almond. I like this without almond ones...these are really crispy and yummy.
