Vrat Rajgiria Puri

Vrat Rajgiria Puri

Another great vrat recipe – Vrat Rajgiria Puri or Amaranth ki poori. Deep fried puffed pooris prepared by combining amaranth flour with boiled potatoes and spices. Amaranth flour is a gluten-free, protein-rich flour and is derived from the seeds of the amaranth plant, which is a leafy vegetable.

LOOKING FOR NAVRATRI MEAL PLANNER , FOLLOW THIS LINK.

Because its gluten-free, amaranth flour is a sticky dough as compared to the wheat flour dough.To bind this dough together boiled and mashed potato is added to the recipe. During the kneading process be careful while adding water. Add water by spoon and knead a soft pliable dough.Rolling Amaranth flour could be difficult. Work it in between two plastic sheets or using your palm spread it out in thin circles. This same recipe can be used to make Amaranth roti or paratha. 

During fasting period people just eat fruits and vegetables and instead of regular flour and rice they substitute their diet with falahari dishes. An ideal fasting food and an excellent accompaniment to Jeera aloo or Vrat ke aloo!!

Amaranth flour is also known as Rajgiria flour – see image below.

DISCLAIMER – If you do not consume a particular veggie or spice during Navratri , feel free to leave that out and follow your family vrat guidelines.
