If there's one Indian bread that is loved across age groups, it has to be the poori. The deep-fried delight is incredibly crisp on the outside yet somehow fluffy and soft on the inside. Devour it as is or with a tangy gravy, a classic poori never goes out of style. The best thing about poori is its versatility - with a number of options for stuffing and flavouring. Mira Kapoor recently experimented with the humble poori to make something colourful and unique with the dish. Take a look at the photo she shared on Instagram:

In the picture that Mira Kapoor shared, we could see three brightly-hued pooris in one frame. One was the classic brownish-yellow poori, the other seemed to be a green-coloured palak version and the third was a bright red beetroot Poori. The colourful pooris looked not just extremely vibrant, but also incredibly tasty! "Continuing the series of #NaniHouseIsTheBest. Rainbow Pooris," wrote Mira Kapoor in the caption of the post.
Mira Kapoor is quite a fan of her mother, Bela Rajput's cooking. She often takes to Instagram to share pictures of what her mom cooked for her, including her 'legendary' masala bread. Take a look at the photo that Mira had shared:
