Methi Puri – Methi Poori Recipe | North Indian Thali 2

Sharing is caring!

As I had said I had planned for a simple Ugadi Breakfast Brunch. After all the elaborate thalis that my fellow BM’ers did, especially Vaishali, who really rocked, I couldn’t pass up such a simple thali. So I had to make something different and decided Sunday was the best. 
Things always happen at the last moment and I couldn’t plan for the breakfast. So I thought I might as well make it a proper lunch. So called parents over for lunch and planned for an elaborate lunch. When I had a Breakfast Thali in mind, I landed in Mittu’s place where she dished out a Dessara Special Breakfast thali. I loved the entire plate and wanted to recreate the same at home. Thanks to her, we ended up with a delicious feast!

Now that it turned out that I am going to make a lunch, I added couple more dishes to make it more elaborate and a feast. It surely ended up being a feast and you get to read it very hot..:)
So finally the thali had Badam Milk, Dahi Vada, Methi Puri, Luchis, Panch phoran Aloo, Channa Masala, Saffron Rice, Suji Halwa. I love Amma’s Dahi Vada, so asked her to make it for lunch.
