Nagori Puri served with Aloo Sabzi and Halwa is a typical breakfast combination served on the streets of Old Delhi. The puris are small and crispy served as a combo with the other two dishes.
My original plan was to share all three dishes in one post. However, lack of time prevented me to do that and I ended up sharing only the pooris for today.
When I was making this, I remembered our stop during our Delhi Street food walk, at the famous Shyam Sweets at Chawri Bazaar. Vaishali ordered Bedmi Sabzi and Nagori Poori, Subzi with Halwa. Nagori pooris are small semolina pooris. These pooris are served with aloo sabzi with Sooji halwa. I remembered eating Moong dal halwa. I later got it confirmed that Vaishali ordered Moong dal halwa because I asked for it.
The platter with puri, sabzi, and halwa was a heavenly combination. The Aloo Sabzi is made in pure ghee and tasted awesome with a wonderful aroma. Vaishali says that a special carrot pickle is served in winters while a mango pickle is substituted in summers. So, I followed her recipe completely making the carrot pickle that both Hubby Dear and I enjoyed to the core!
A delicious street food platter from Old Delhi which can be enjoyed for breakfast or lunch. Sorry, I am posting only the poori for today. It is Nagori Poori in the Delhi Street Food. Check out the traditional breakfast from Coorg on C4AS.
