Looks so easy with the Tortilla Maker. I guess this is the nearest that you can get to automated pooris.

good point.

You make it look so easy! You could also use grapeseed oil or rice bran oil also very healthy and they don't flavour what you are frying, but I love theflavor of olive oil. Maybe I will try making these in small size for pani puri/poori. BTW you can buy a manual tortilla press in wood or metal at Mexican markets. I have never seen this electric type-interesting- Shanti/Mary-Anne

Thank you - The tortilla maker that I have is made by a company that went out of business. Still Google and you should be able to find something. In the string of comments another viewer bought a Roti Maker. Maybe send an email to the viewer.

You shouldn't use Olive Oil. The smoking point for olive oil is too low and therefore it is not recommended for frying. Once the temperature of the oil exceeds its smoking point it becomes quite unhealthy and dangerous.
