Today is the final day of this week under Indian states theme. For the final day I chose a simple yet delicious savoury snack from Gujarat. Farsi puri is a flaky, crispy flat round snack which goes well with coffee or tea. The puri is made with maida and the preparation reminded me of chiroti. Usually I try to post during mid night but as it was Saturday, I planned on preparing the puris during day tinme and post it by noon.
But things went hectic. I couldn’t make the puris as planned. I prepared the puris by evening and only by 11 pm I am drafting the post. But somehow, the post will go online today. And tomorrow is a holiday!! We have even planned for an outing tomorrow. So until I come back with anoher theme on Sunday, enjoy this visual treat.
