Aloo Puri is a delicious Indian bread which is made by mixing boiled potatoes with flour and spices. This Punjabi deep-fried poori is great to serve for breakfast or snacks. Here is how to make it.
Puri is an everyday affair in Indian homes when it comes to festive meals.
Especially In North India, especially during Diwali or any other big festival, Puri will be a part of the meals along with other delicacies.
While a simple Puri is made often at home, I also like to experiment with its flavours and overtime I am surprised that how each and every Puri tastes so delicious.
So this time I made Aloo Puri, which is a simple Puri where boiled potatoes are kneaded along with the dough and then slightly flavored with spices.
This flavourful Puri tastes delicious on its own and can be enjoyed as a snack too.
I love them so much, that whenever I make this for lunch, an extra batch is always ready to be relished with the evening Adrak Wali Chai.
What is Aloo Puri?
Aloo Ki Puri is a puffed Indian masala bread that is deep-fried and served with mouth-watering curries.
While the normal Puri is just made with whole wheat flour, salt, and water, this Puri is flavored with boiled potatoes, carom seeds, cumin seeds, red chilli flakes, and fresh coriander.
These ingredients bring out the flavors of this crispy Puri, and I assure you every bite of this Alu Puri will make you fall in love with it.
And if you are serving it for your parties, make sure you make some extra dough.
Because your guests will not just stop at two or three.
These Aloo Puri are so flavourful on its own, that you can serve it on its own or along with a Raita and Pickle of your choice.
I also like to serve these crispy Puri for my tea time snack along with Tea or Coffee.
You can even serve it along with some mouth-watering curries such as Chole Ki Sabzi, Channa Curry, Aloo Ki Bhaji or any other curry you make at home.
This puffed Indian bread is very versatile and goes almost with all the Indian curries and sabzi.
If I am making it for a festive lunch or dinner, I always serve it along with Kheer.
This is my favourite combination for festivals, or just for days when I want to eat something comforting and tasty.
