Yellow globes of hot fried dough, bathed in some type of chutney (whether it be mango, pommecythere or tamarind) and if you're going the extra mile throw in a little piece of masala mango at the side and we have perfection. As a child growing up, I remember my mother making this for us and while most persons may think this, my mother had some of the best pholourie you would ever eat. This woman somehow managed to make her pholouries light with a little crunch but soft and airy at the same time (magic I know). Of course her chutney making skills were also amazing. Needless to say, to this day I have family who ask upon visiting that she fry up a batch of her pholouries for old time sake lol. Like most, I'm currently on my quarantine snacks craze so I begged mummy for her recipe. What is even better is that when I was finished, she gave me her two thumbs up (if you knew my mother this is a great honor okay trust me). Mummy shared with me so of course i'm sharing with you. Here's the recipe.


2 cups Flour 4 ounce Split Pea Powder 1 tsp Baking Powder 1/2 tsp Yeast 1/2 tsp Turmeric 1 3/4 cup Water

1/2 tsp Salt

Oil for deep frying


●In a large mixing add all the dry ingredients and mix.

●Add water gradually until you form a thick paste.

●Cover and set aside to rest for an hour or so.

●To a medium frying pan or wok add oil to deep fry and heat on high heat.

(Test oil with wooden spoon by placing spoon into oil if it bubbles then it is hot enough)

●Using a deep spoon and a shallow spoon coated in oil to scoop out batter. Scoop batter into deep spoon clean the edges with shallow spoon and scrape batter into oil with one motion using the end of the shallow spoon.

●Once the batter is in the oil it will quickly rise to the surface, allow to cook for approximately 1 min on one side and the flip on the other side and cook til golden brown.

●Remove from oil and set aside to drain on parchment paper or paper towels, repeat until you've fried all the batter and then serve hot with the chutney of your choice.

With this recipe I used a store bought tamarind chutney that i spruced up with some of my own seasonings. I do hope you enjoy creating and eating this snack.

Thanks for joining me for another session of Food Therapy. I hope to see you soon❤
