Dahi Puri, the thought makes you run to the typical street chaat vendor nearby. After panipuri, Dahi puri is one of the most sought after dishes people vouch for. Dahi puri is a yummy savory chaat with mixed flavors. Dahi means curd or yoghurt. Puri is the same that is used for panipuri. Whisked sweet dahi mixed with sev and many other ingredients are poured into the puri and eaten.
Though a bit high in calories, kids and elders love to eat Dahi puri after indulging their taste buds with the fiery pani puri as the sweet curd in the dahi puri would soothe their taste buds. Yummmmm! It is always best to eat Dahi puri immediately once it is prepared so that you can get the crispiness of the puri or else they become soggy very fast. What makes a dahi puri truly divine is obviously the humble curds which are made daily in every Indian household. The curds have to be fresh and chilled and most importantly of the right consistency, neither too thick nor thin. If your curds are not very fresh, add a few tablespoons of milk to cut down the sharp acidic taste.
The Dahi puri originates from the city of Mumbai and is also popular in other metros.
To prepare the Dahi puris firstly keep all your stuffings (like the boiled potatoes, boiled peas), sev and sauces ready. Take yoghurt add a little sugar and whisk well and place aside. Take a small plate and spread sev like a bed so that the puris would stand on them. Break the top center of the round puri and fill half with few small cut potato pieces, boiled peas, little sweet curd, few drops of sweet chutney, green chutney, finely chopped onions, tomatoes, cucumber, coriander leaves, add sev and fill it more with sweet curd. Stuff all the puris and place them on the plate. Over it pour little sweet curd, sweet chutney, sprinkle some chilli powder, chaat masala, fresh coriander leaves and sprinkle sev and serve immediately.
