Poori, also known as puri, is a traditional type of Indian bread, made of whole wheat flour and fried.

These delicious fried breads are commonly served for breakfast or even as a snack. You can also find them stuffed with mashed potatoes or vegetables, which are equally delicious. The only problem is that typical poori is not particularly keto-friendly.

This recipe, however, has a few changes to the traditional one, creating a keto poori that tastes amazing.

The recipe calls for xanthan gum, which you may not have heard of before. Xanthan gum is an additive often found in gluten-free products. It is used to help thicken and stabilize foods.

There has been quite a bit of controversy over xanthan gum, but the FDA has deemed it safe for consumption. In fact, there are health benefits that are linked with xanthan gum,and it is believed to: 

- lower cholesterol

- aid in weight loss

- contain cancer fighting properties

It has been found that xanthan gum may only pose a problem if consumed in amounts over 15 grams, which is highly unlikely in most diets.
