Poori’s are mainly served with potato curry in EVERY part of India. Trust me no meal can be more tempting and comforting than this. 🙂 As it’s summer so I rarely cook deep fried food but when it comes to making poori JUST ignore the weather and enjoy the meal 😀 Today when I was wondering what to cook for breakfast that’s when my dear husband asked me to prepare Poori and potato curry for lunch as the Shravan month has started and we can’t have non-vegetarian meal so what’s better that Poori- potato curry to enjoy sunday 😛
