An age-old combo with a timeless charm, Puri Bhaji makes a perfect breakfast! It is prepared in almost all regions of India, with just mild variations.
Fluffy and golden brown whole wheat flour puris are served with a bhaji of potatoes perked up with everyday ingredients like onions, green chillies and lemon juice.
It is ideal for breakfast because it is easy and quick to make. Nevertheless, the homely flavour and comfortable mouth-feel of this dish are really awesome, and unfailingly remind one of their mother’s love! Serve the puris fresh with hot aloo bhaji.
Laccha Onions and pickle make a fitting accompaniment to Puri Bhaji.
