Pholourie is a fried spiced snack made from a mix of all purpose flour and gram flour, very popular in Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana and Suriname. This was original brought from the Indians settled here many years ago.
In the theme I was cooking on Adapted cuisines, I also wanted to cover something on Indian cuisine adapted in other countries and this pholourie was so apt. I have been wanting to make it for so long and finally so happy that I could make this and enjoyed a hearty snack over the weekend.
I was inspired by this recipe, though there are so many versions found on net! I really enjoyed this theme and hope to have this again to cover so many other cuisines.
