Crispy Aloo Puri


Crispy Aloo Puri is a delicious Indian bread which is made by mixing boiled potatoes with wheat flour and spices. This Punjabi deep-fried poori is great to serve for breakfast or snacks. The steps for preparing Crispy Aloo Puri is well illustrated here. This flavourful Puri tastes delicious on its own and can even be enjoyed as a snack without any accompaniment. I love it that way. While the normal Puri is made with whole wheat flour, salt and water, this Puri is flavored with boiled potatoes, carom seeds, cumin seeds, chilli powder, and fresh coriander leaves. These ingredients bring out the flavors of this crispy Puri, and I assure you every bite of this Punjabi delicacy this will make you fall in love with it.
