Poori or puri is a deep fried Indian bread made of Wheat flour. Poori is commonly eaten during breakfast or at snack time or also taken as a light meal. Poori is prepared in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Turkey. Poori is frequently prepared in Northern India than Southern India as wheat is the staple in North India region. Puri is also served during special occasions or during festival or rituals accompanied with vegetable curries.
Puri is also served with sheera during poojas or rituals as prasad. The name Puri comes from the Sanskrit word purika. Normally puri is prepared from maida (all purpose flour) instead of atta (wheat flour). In Pakistan and some parts of India like West Bengal, puri is usually made with maida (regular wheat flour) instead of atta. 
The size of puri is smaller than the chapati. Puri can be accompanied with a variety of dishes like aloo korma, channa masala, saag (mixed vegetable curry), halwa and much more. A slight variant of puri is the bhatura. Bhatura is bigger in size than puri and popularly served with choley (spicy chickpeas). Chole Bhatura is a famous street meal in Delhi and Punjab region. It is also a complete meal.
Different sizes of puris are prepared as per the name of the dish like the pani puri (a small version of the puri), sev puri (another type of puri made for preparing a chaat). Puri is a dish loved by all, the old and the young. In Telangana region, puri is served with Chicken korma made during the festive season. Puri bhaji can be eaten anytime during breakfast, snack time or also as a small meal.
