My Improv & Notes

  • Strictly use crispy and large puris. Leaving the Puris in the open even for a little while turn them less crunchy
  • furthermore, use thick and creamy yogurt for a better taste. Also fresh yogurt is preferred over sour
  • You can add Green Sprouts to turn it healthy – tastes great!
  • Some recipes recommend adding Green Peas with the boiled Potatoes¬†
  • Adjust the use of chili powder according to your spice levels¬†
  • finally, once Dahi Puri is prepared, serve immediately¬†– else they turn soggy
  • Tamarind Chutney and Green Chutney can be bought in the store as well. For those in the US, majority of Indian Grocery stores sell both the Chutneys. If you plan to make them at home, refer to these recipes¬† –¬†Green Chutney Recipe,¬†Tamarind Dates Chutney¬†Recipe
