Palak Poori Recipe or Palak Puri Recipe with step by step pictures. Spinach Puri dough made with spinach puree which taste super delicious with aloo masala (poori masala).
Poori masala is my favorite breakfast. I can eat it all day, but due to weight concern I have reduced it to once in a month or twice. There is a shop near our house, it is a small café..They have this yummiest poori masala I have ever tasted. We order it from that shop always, if Amma don’t like to make breakfast on Sunday. Wow I am drooling now, but I couldn't eat it now.
About Palak Puri Recipe (Spinach Puri Recipe)
Now coming back to poori's. I love to try different flavours of poori's whenever I make it at home. You can see methi poori and potato stuffed poori in my blog. This is one of the usual poori that many one of you must have heard. It is made out of spinach, so its partially healthy too. I used pureed spinach to make the poori instead of adding water. so it gives that lovely green colour to the poori and a nice aroma to it. One more thing you should keep in mind is, always make the poori dough stiffer that make the poori to puff up while you drop in oil and will prevent the poori from absorbing lots of oil.
Poori taste great with the masala which you usually have with. I will now post the traditional poori masala which I served with this. I know you will love it for sure.
