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. Drain these puris on an absorbent paper and serve immediately on preparation, to enjoy the best texture.

The stuffing is very tasty. Fry the puris on a medium flame so that they are crisp. Taste best when hot. Loaded with amazing flavours of rajasthan
