Puri Bhaji – Sunday lunch special

Sunday for me is a day spent with family having no plans. A lazy morning and then a royal lunch.

Today I made my husband’s favorite Masala Puri and Bhaji.

A wonderful combination, Puri Bhaji is made in almost every Indian home and is a favorite among all. It is best served with pickle and I love to serve it with my favorite roughly cut salad.

So, read the recipe here and make it for your next Sunday lunch!
