Palak Puri (Spinach Bread)

Palak Puri (Spinach Bread)

 My spouse being in sales is traveling a lot. He is least interested in carrying house cooked stuff as he says it is cumbersome to carry veggies. With this option, now he need not carry veggies and being deep fried it has long shelf life. Further easier to relish in a moving car as well. Superb option for picnic and long drives. I enjoy this during winter season with a cup of tea .....
