Puri Bhajji ~ Alu Puri

Puri Bhaji

Dear Reader and my fellow blogger friends, I was away from the Blogosphere circuit as I was busy settling things in my new house. But I am back with my favourite breakfast dish Puri Bhajji.

Puri Bhaji is the most popular Breakfast at our place. Puri Bhaji is popularly known as Alu Puri in Northern parts of India.
Its being served as heavy brunch at my place over the weekend. Puris are puffed wheat flat breads, they are served with delicious potatoe vegetable popularly known as Bhajji in Maharashtra. I simply love the aroma of curry leaves in this sabji. This simple yet tasty meal is ideal for a lazy weekend brunch.
