Ajwain Puri is a deep-fried puffed Indian bread flavoured with carom seeds. These are crispy delicious pooris served with side dishes like Amritsari Aloo or Chana Masala and Boondi Raita to make it a complete meal.
This Puri Flavoured With Carom Seeds is a very simple and easy Indian Bread to make and it sure is healthy as it has Ajwain Seeds added. Cooking a little longer will get you a crispy texture that makes it a wonderful taste. You can serve this for breakfast or any meal along with side dishes.
This Punjabi Breakfast was one of the first ones I prepared for this theme. Since it involved puris, it was easy to decide. Sundays mostly end up being a brunch and I wanted to have some sweets included. Both were almost an afterthought and I had to come up with some instant versions.
The whole platter was most enjoyable as everything complemented and was a delicious one. Ajwain Poori is the featured dish in the Punjabi Breakfast Thali. On SYL, it's another popular Street food menu!
