Bihari Chana Dal Puri Recipe is a traditional Bihari style poori stuffed with chana dal cooked in spices. This Bengal gram dal stuffed puris are made of wheat flour stuffed with chana and deep fried.
Traditionally one serves these dal puri with rice kheer for breakfast. Since I was planning on making a thali I decided to make these Bihari Aloo Bhujia and chana masala made in Bihari style. I remembered the Aloo Bhujia my colleague used to get for us.
Talking about stuffed pooris, there are many different stuffed pooris that I have already shared. With the AtoZ Indian Pooris, I had checked on so many recipes as well. However, my best pick would always be the Radhaballabhi, a deep fried Bengali Poori stuffed with spiced urad dal. I have a huge collection of stuffed pooris, so reading about newer version still amazes me.
When I set out to make, I landed in here to read about this Chana Dal Puri prepared in Bihari Style. As always I don’t remember for what or when I end up with a recipe, however made note that I would do it for this theme. I was skitical about only serving it with Kheer as its not a combination even I would like. I then searched to for other ones. Thats when I remembered the Aloo Bhujia and I was serving it for Sunday Brunch, I decided I would also checkout the chana masala way.
The whole meal was so delicious and we enjoyed the brunch complete with the Chawal Ki Kheer. I wanted something contrast to serve and felt the Pomegranate Juice will be colourful
