DAHI PURI


Dahi purii another popular chaat / street food. The crispy puris are stuffed with potatoes, boondi, sprouts or chana and are served with a topping of blended yogurt, some chutneys and sev.You may add finely chopped onion too if you like. It makes a perfect snack in summer when served with chilled yogurt. Chaat has always been my favourite since child hood.



Ingredients:
Puris .. as needed
Potatoes ... boiled and cut into fine pieces
Moong sprouts .. boiled
Boondi .. Soaked in water
Sweet tamarind chutney .. as needed
Mint coriander chutney .. as needed
Yogurt .. blended with salt
Onions ... finely chopped ( optional
Coriander leaves .. for garnishing
Sev .... fine variety (for garnishing)
Dry roasted and ground cumin powder .. to sprinkle
Chaat masala ... to sprinkle
Red chilli powder ... to sprinkle

To make puris :
Maida or Wheat Flour.....1 tea cup
Sooji or Semolina ......1 tea cup
Salt to taste
Mix all above ingredients into a soft dough.
2. Take some dough, make into a big ball and roll out into a puri size.
3. Repeat to make another chapati of the same size.
4. Brush a little oil on the surface of one chapati. Sprinkle some flour.
5. Place another chapati on top and continue rolling until thin. Avoid creases during the rolling process.
 6. Now using a small round cutter or a bottle lid, cut small circles out of it.



4. Now, deep fry them. Make them raise or puff up on high flame and then lower the flame so that they get crisp. Fry them till they turn golden brown and crisp.

Method to prepare the fillings:

Potatoes:
1. Boil 3 to 4 potatoes.
