This is a street side snack from central india. "puri bhaji" was everyone’s favourite dish for breakfast, especially in the olden days, when everyone lived in joint families and puris were considered the quickest to make. This recipe of puris uses an urad dal paste that gives bulk to the puris and also makes them crisper. Onion seeds add a hint of flavour to these puris. The aloo ki subji is a simple and delightful dish.
