Aloo Puri (Potato Bread)

Aloo Puri (Potato Bread) 

Aloo Puri is an option to having puri and sabji separately. There are many occasions when it is difficult to carry sabji with you when you are travelling or when kids are on to a picnic or similar situation, then this option gives you all ingredients of sabji i.e. aloo along with methi.

Methi also enhances taste of puri with its aroma. My mom used to pack this often in my lunch box as kids are notorious for leaving sabji unfinished...
