Notes & Tips

1. Dahi poori should be prepared just before serving else pooris will become soggy.

2. *I use 2 finger pinch each of kala namak, chat masala and red chilli powder and 3 finger pinch each of roasted jeera and dhaniya powders per poori. **Also, atleast 1 tsp tamarind chutney and 1/2 tsp green chutney per poori).

3. Green chutney can be prepared by grinding together equal amounts of pudina and dhaniya pata, 1-2 green chilli, lemon juice and salt.
