Indori Puri Palak Ki

Welcome to Madhya Pradesh. Madhya means Central, Pradesh is Region. So as the name suggests, it is situated in the central region of India. Vast areas of this state are inhabited by the various tribes and each tribe has a distinct food culture.

Madhya Pradesh reminds of the terrible tragedy of Bhopal. It was termed as the world's worst industrial disaster which claimed more than 10,000 lives and affected about 500,000 people. 

Coming to the cuisine, Indore is known for its street food and from what I gathered, these Palak Puris are to be had only in the streets of Indore, if you get the meaning :).

My kids loved these puris so much that I had to make them a second time on the same day.

While you munch the puris here, I shall hop onto Maharashtra and prepare a yummy and unbelievable snack.

Ingredients - 

Wheat Flour 1 cup
Palak / Spinach 1 cup
Ginger + Green Chilli Paste 2 tsp (or to taste)
Oil 2 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil to deep fry

Indori Puri Palak Ki

Method Of Preparation -

Blanch the spinach and set aside.

Grind it along with ginger and green chillies to a fine paste adding as little water as needed.

In a mixing bowl, mix the flour, salt and oil. Add in the spinach paste and knead into a stiff dough. (Adjust the spinach puree so the dough is not too soft. If the dough is too soft, add more flour and knead well.)

Set aside for a few minutes.

Heat oil in a wok/kadai.

Divide the dough into 12 equal parts and roll out each portion into a thin disc. Cover and keep aside.

When the oil is hot enough, gently slide the rolled out disc, let it puff out while aiding with a perforated ladle. Flip and cook on the underside as well.

Remove onto paper towels. Continue with the rest of the dough.

Serve them hot with an accompaniment of your choice.
