An elaborate snack, which is nevertheless not too tough to prepare, Bhedawi Puri offers a unique dining experience of nigella flavoured puris stuffed with a masaledar urad dal mixture. The nigella seeds add a tantalising flavour to the puris while the fennel seeds, although used in smaller quantities than other spices lends its inimitable touch to the stuffing.
