Dal Puri

Dal Puri

  Dal puri is basically flat bread stuffed with lentil and spices. It is a very popular snack in Bangladesh and India. Usually red lentil is used for this recipe. Some people like to use dry chilli for this but my personal choice is green chilli (if possible Bombay chilli). If anyone wants to use dry chilli, dry chilli fry first and then make a flake.     Ingredients: For stuffing: ½ cup red lentil 3 green chilli finely chopped 1/8 teaspoon turmeric powder ½ sliced medium onion ½ teaspoon ginger paste ½ teaspoon garlic paste 1 tablespoon chopped coriander leaves ½  Bombay chilli (optional) Salt For dough: 1 and ½ cup plain flour 2 tablespoon oil 1 teaspoon salt Oil for deep fry Black salt (optional) How to make: Stuffing: Wash the lentil and cook the lentil with ¾ cup water, green chilli, turmeric, onion, ginger, garlic and salt. Sometimes you need more water to cook the lentil. When water gets dry, take off from hot plate and mix

Fuska / Fuchka / ফুসকা -The Best Street Food Ever

Fuska / Fuchka / ফুসকা -The Best Street Food Ever

Fuska Fuska is the most popular street food in Bangladesh. I bet that every Bangladeshi, who lives in abroad, misses its unique spicy, sour, crispy taste. But we can easily make it at home and enjoy the deshi flavour in abroad. It is a bit long process, if you make the Fuska shell before, it will be less hustle. Only one thing (Talmakhana) will be hard to get in abroad. You can bring it from Bangladesh. Even you can buy readymade Fuska shells from Indian grocery. But I always prefer homemade one.   Ingredients: For dough: . 1 and ½ cups plain flour .1 tablespoon semolina . ½ teaspoon salt . 1  teaspoon Talmakhana . Oil for deep fry For stuffing: . 200 grams dried peas . 1 cup diced large boiled potato .  1 tablespoon roasted cumin powder . 1 finely sliced medium size onion . 4 finely sliced green chillies . Coriander leaves chopped . Black salt . Salt For Tamarind water: . 50 gram tamarind . 1
