There are so many great Indian restaurant starter dishes that go well with puris!
I can still remember the first time I tried a stuffed puri. I was at an Indian restaurant in Croydon with a group of friends. One ordered prawn puri and recommended I do the same. I went for the lamb keema puri and it was amazing.
Since that day about 20 years ago, puris have become sort of a naughty treat. I love them but they aren’t exactly low in calories.
Fattening though they may be, they are so nice.
If you are having a group of people over for a curry night dinner and really want to impress, making homemade puris should be on your to-do list. You can serve them with prawns, lamb mince, potatoes, chicken tikka… almost anything you serve with these fried breads will go down well.
Most restaurants use cooking oil to fry their puris. The traditional way to fry them is in ghee. I’ll leave it up to you. You will get a much more British Indian restaurant (BIR) experience if you use oil but I have to say I do love puris cooked in ghee.
