Thischat item doesn't come under the north indian cuisine.. its very much from Bengaluru..
Can we make puri at home
Yes, you can make at home.
I soaked the dried white peas and cooked them in pressure cooker. They taste slightly bitter. How to get rid of the bitter taste?
This is a keeper recipe. I prepare this often even as side dish for chapati. The problem must be with the dried white peas. Maybe old stock. Try buying some other brand.
I tried this today and turned out awesome… My husband and my mom loved it. Instead of ready made King masala, I used fresh ingredients to grind that masala and the taste was heavenly. Thanks for such a wonderful recipe. I have tried and tested many recipes of yours and everything turned out great!!!
