If you have eaten bedmi puri/poori in your city then you definitely have a clue what this post is all about. As kids I have traveled a lot with my dad and on one of our trips to Nathdwara temple we tried this poori in a local restaurant and the taste is still afresh in my mouth. Bedmi poori also known as urad dal ki poori is a popular breakfast of the North. Bedmi poori is made from grounded urad dal combined with spices and later mixed with wheat flour. There are two ways to make this pooris, one that I have used- grounded dal, spices combined with rice flour, wheat flour to form a dough and other method it to make a dry mixture of dal, spices and stuff it in the dough just like a kachori. If you are looking for a dal kachori recipe, then follow the recipe here.
RECIPE DETAIL– I start the recipe by soaking the dal for 3 – 4 hours. After the soaking time ground the dal. Dal should be grainy and has small grain like chunks. Combine it with spices, rice flour, wheat flour and knead a soft dough. Rice flour adds a crunchy texture to these pooris. Heat oil and fry until its crispy and golden brown in color.
Once a month me and my family enjoy our morning breakfast with Bedmi poori along with aloo vegetable and homemade curd. It’s yum, delicious and very filling. Do give it a try and take your taste-buds for a ride.
