Methi-Palak Puri

In India we have Poori’s or Indian fried bread of many kinds stuffed with various things. It can change due to seasons or vegetables availability. In the winter season fenugreek leaves or Methi is available in abundance and so is spinach or Palak. Loving both these vegetables a lot, I decided to make a Methi-Palak Puri or Fenugreek-Spinach Fried Bread. This is so tasty that one can have on its own or with pickles and vegetables. I chose to have with a Tomato based curry instead of a dip or Chutney. When plated the Green colour from the Poori with red colour of Chutney gave such a beautiful display #MadhubishsKitchen
