Bedmi Poori Aaloo Sabzi

BM # 10   Day 2

Bedmi Poori is an 0ld Delhi speciality.Though it is served there for breakfast throughout the year, We prefer to serve it in winters as it is cooked in pure ghee and is really heavy.Rather difficult to digest in summers,for us this is absolutely winter food.

Bedmi Poori is a bread made of wheat flour and ground udad dal.These are much heavier than the regular pooris,you can say lighter version of kachoris.These Bedmis are served with Aaloo sabzi,cooked lavishly in pure ghee.The sabzi is then topped with a tangy and spicy chutney.
