This is my next thali meal..Its from Gujarat..I made nice puffy poori along with this spicy aloo tamatar and a lovely salad. The meal was a complete hit..I enjoyed each piece so much..the poori was so puffy and it stayed puffy for a long time..Will talk about that later in another post..The curry was spicy yet flavourful which was perfect with poori. To make the meal even more special I made a lovely crunchy salad..
