Puri/Poori

Puri or Poori is a popular breakfast all over India and  we,GSB's prepare it with potato bhaji more often.This is a very common recipe so I delayed it till now.But I felt my blog is incomplete without this famous dish.There are lot of combos served with puri like puri-sagoo,puri-kurma,puri-chana masala ,Puri-shrikand,Puri-Aamras etc.But the fast moving combo is Puri -bhaji.I will update this post with different combos as and when I prepare the same.Puri is served in most of the functions too.Most of the kids relish it very well...March month is a very difficult month since the atmosphere is filled with  exams,exams and only exams.So I have already started digging my albums to post new recipes which I hadn't posted so far.Waiting to cook many bookmarked goodies.Until then stay tuned :)
