With monsoons just around the corner , I am all set to indulge in piping hot snacks with Adrak wali chai ( ginger tea). I know that I’m not the only one out there , who craves for the likes of kanda bhaji / onion pakoras, when it rains.
With this thought , I think I won’t wait for the monsoons. I’ll just make do with the pre- monsoons instead and start enjoying my favourite snacks.
To get the weekend started , I decided to recreate a traditional recipe called Tikhat Mithachi Poori or Masala Poori.. It is one of my grandmom’s recipe . I can still remember her sitting on the floor in the kitchen ,with a big paraat (vessel) , kneading a dough for these spicy pooris. My mom, then used to take the dough , roll out the pooris and fry them into this amazing puffed pooris.
And the fun part of having puffed pooris?… puncturing a fresh hot poori with your finger! Today I see my kids doing the same J. It comes naturally to everyone , I guess.
Sharing the recipe here….enjoy !
