Tried and Tasted - Urad dal pooris and potato curry

Jugalbandi - a blog that I go to not just for recipes, but also for their anecdotes and fantastic pictures. When I came to know that T&T features them this month, I bookmarked a couple of recipes. I've religiously done this for the last 3 T&Ts but didn't get around to the cooking part of it. This time around, I did try out and taste the jugalbandits' urad dal pooris and potato masala. Here's the result.I made no changes at all to the puris. J&B are absolutely right when they say that these taste much better than regular puris. Next time around, I might add in some garam masala and amchur to the dough, though. To the potato masala, I added more green chillies and skipped the red chilli powder. Oh...and did I tell you these puris are so much prettier than the regular ones?
Thank you, Jai & B.

Needless to say, this goes to Zlamushka for her Tried and Tasted event.

wow .. i had never heard of urad puris .. they look very tasty .. will give it a try sometime

sra said...

Dunno why, but it struck me as unusual that you described the pooris as pretty - I think that's one adjective I've not seen in conjunction with pooris. Not that they're not, just that it struck me!

Jayasree, veggie - do try it out. You'll love it.
Sireesha, Sowmya - thank u.
Sra, the puris were a really nice colour - maybe from a combination of the red chillies and kalonji in the dough.

Aren't they delicious! I think this is such a wonderful idea, so much faster and still tastes great. Food blogging is surely improving my cooking skills!

another blogger tried it and took it up a notch soak whole urad beans and grind them instead of the husked variety. you will be puris all pretty with black flecks and a slightly different flavour. everyone who tries our recipes says "next time we'll make it hotter". we're wimps and tone down the heat a lot. lol.
