Dahi Puri

Dahi Puri

If you don't know what dahi puri is, it's similar to pan puri, or gol gappay. They are literally tiny puri's (a semolina and flour dough that is rolled out and fried to crispy and chewy perfection). Since they are rolled out so small they puff up and hollow out. You fill them with a mixture of potatoes and chickpeas and douse them in a spiced yogurt and some delicious chutneys. It's way less messy than Pain Puri and I love making Dahi Puri more because you can add lots of flavor. They make the perfect appetizer at any table, and my favorite time to make them is during Ramadan. They're easy and fun to eat, and even easier to make.

Mint Chutney

Mint Chutney

Chutneys have the power to make or break your food. I don't mind buying ready made chutneys, but there are two that I make the effort to make, especially during Ramadan, because I like my version the best and also because they make me feel a little closer to home! They have such deep and concentrated flavors that a little goes a long way and there's nothing like a well made chutney that instantly transports you back home. Hari Chutney, or mint chutney, is such a classic...

Chicken Paratha Rolls

Chicken Paratha Rolls

It's essentially your classic roti/paratha with meat, salad and chutneys all rolled in one, but the act of rolling everything together just elevates the flavors and allows them to truly combine, creating a memorable experience, which is why I make paratha rolls so often...
