We serve six individual dahi puri in this jumbo portion.
Dahi puri, or dahipuri, is especially popular in the state of Maharashtra, India. The dish is a form of chaat (street food) and originates from the city of Mumbai. The round, hard, puffy puri shell (deep-fried hollow bread made of unleavened wheat flour) is first broken on top and partially filled with the main stuffing of mashed potatoes or chickpeas. A small amount of chaat masala and chilli powder are added for taste, as well as a pinch of salt. Sweet tamarind chutney and fresh green coriander chutney are then poured into the shell, on top of the stuffing. Finally, sweetened yoghurt is generously poured over the shell. The finished product is garnished with sprinklings of crushed crunchy sev (vermicelli-like deep-friend chickpea noodles), moong daal (mung beans), and finely chopped coriander leaves. Each dahi puri is intended to be eaten whole, so that the spectrum of flavors and textures create a delightful explosion in the mouth.
