4.) Poori – Aloo sabzi – Jalebi:


Yet another appetizing recipe from our hinterland.The most popular choice to accompany this deep fried delight is a simple vegan curry of potato called AlooBhaaji. Roughly mashed boiled potatoes are cooked along with fried onions and few selected spices. AlooBhaji is one of the most simple, easy to follow recipe, but it is also one of the best tasting dish that goes well with Poori.
