Two of my friends are also celebrating their Anniversaries today - Happy Anniversary to Sandy & Hari and to Shwetha & Babu! Enjoy your day guys!
I do have to mention that none of this was planned. I was thinking about what to make for dinner. I was talking to my friend yesterday and something came up about puris. I then realized that I had not made in maybe a couple of months. So, from that time ...it was bugging me...the craving I mean!
So, for dinner tonight I thought I'll make puris - and then it was also raining ..so the craving was pretty strong. But, I was also very strongly feeling something else...guilt..of deep fried food on a weekday night...oh..the pressure! So, I thought " Hey - why not make Spinach Puri" - makes up for a tiny bit of the guilt..LOL!!
And then my daughter said she wants both a plain and a spinach puri. Ok. That's easy. So, I started making the atta for puri and was talking to my daughter about republic day! And that was when it stuck me - to make a third orange puri and make it an all celebratory republic day dinner! I mean, don't we always celebrate everything with food??
So - here we go.
For the Spinach puris, just boil a few fresh leaves of spinach for a couple of mins. When done, blend it well and mix with atta to make green color atta!
So, here are my three colored atta ready to be made into puris!
Make small balls out of the atta.
Roll out into small puris. Get your little one to help out! Mine was so excited like you can see. She wanted to do one puri of each color.
Uh-oh..someone's got a sticky situation!
And here, my dear friends are the three colored puris.
Happy Indian Republic Day to all of you!
Enjoy. Peace out!
