Game for some unusual fare today? Try this delectable Chana Dal Puri, which combines soaked and ground chana dal with wheat flour and semolina in the dough.
A couple of spices and coriander do their bit in jazzing up the taste of these puris. Do not fry too many puris at once, and while frying always press each puri lightly into the oil so that it’ll puff up.
