Who doesn’t like to have steaming-hot Poori Bhaji Recipe with potato curry on a rainy afternoon? The mere thought of this scrumptious Maharashtrian delicacy can make anyone hungry. Poori-Bhaji (or puri bhaji) is a popular dish in Maharashtra. If you have been looking for easy dinner ideas, then this is it!
The Poori Bhaji Recipe is a type of Indian bread, made from whole wheat flour and deep fried till brownish and fluffy. The bhaji is the dry potato curry or sabzi made with boiled potatoes and spices. You can find innumerable potato recipes of this kind throughout India, each of them bursting with flavors of local cuisine. Such is the diversity of Indian food! If you have been to Gali Parathe Wali in Chandni Chowk, Delhi, you are served the soupy / stew-y version of potato curry with parathas. In south India, the dry potato sabzi is served with dosai, what we know as Masala Dosa. And in Maharashtra and other states in central part of India, people relish poori-bhaji with great fervor.
Practically speaking, poori-bhaaji can be had anytime; for breakfast, lunch or dinner. So, in this post I am going to tell you how to make the potato bhaji. In the upcoming post, we will see how to make perfect pooris.
Like I said, the popular Indian foods are prepared throughout the country, and each one of them tastes quite distinctive, sometimes way different from the authentic cousin. We are a Sindhi household, and most dishes prepared at home consist of garlic. Garlic pairs up beautifully with potatoes. But if you don’t like garlic in your food, you can give it a pass. This recipe calls for a lot of fresh green chilies because we do not add red chili powder to it. All the hotness comes from green chilies. You may adjust the quantity as per your taste. We add a couple of dry red chilies for aroma. You can even bite on them. They won’t taste very fiery after they are sautéed properly. Also, I mashed the potatoes completely. If you like your potatoes slightly crumbled or cubed, you can keep them that way.
Now let us see how to make this scrumptious potato bhaji. This will serve 3 people, if you follow the given measurements.
