Puri and Rajma

I have not made puri for atleast two years.
Apparently last week there was a puri making week in the blog world, which I totally missed ( as a new blogger i am just getting used to all these events).
And every time i visited a blog there it was PURI you coudn't miss it. And watching all these puris, mostly with potato curry i decided even though the week have passed i would make it today for lunch.
You know i've been drooling in all the blogs ............
Years back well to be specific the firsr year of beeing married i tried to make puri and it never ended up like a balloon so each time i was disapionted. So one day i was telling me my sister that my puri's are alwasy a disaster. So she told me how she makes it and i did and it came out perfect.
So you know when you make puris you are handeling hot oil in the kitchen.

I was trying out my sisters way of making puri and i saw the miracle happening infront of my eye, the puri was becoming like a balloon and i shouted from the kitchen, Hans come fast ( he thinking there was a disaster came fast to the kitchen)

And what he saw was me standing with a big smile saying it is comming like a balloon. And is remark was you gave me a shock, i thought you spîlled oil all over. MEN !!!!!!!

I made puri from Mahanadi ( a idea which i got from Budding Cook)

Ready to make Rajma.

Few of the things


It is done

Rajma 250gm
Salt 1 tsp
Cummin seeds 1 tsp
2 Onions fineley chopped
Ginger garlic paste 3 tbsp
Curd 1 tbsp

Turmeric Powder 1 tsp
Red chillie powder 2 tbsp

Few tbsp corriander leaves .

Cook the rajma with salt.
Heat the oil and add cummin seed. Then add the onions and the ginger garlic paste, fry them till they are brown.
