Dahi Puri

Dahi Puri is one of our favourite chaat. Dahi is the hindi word for curd/ Yoghurt and the main flavour comes from this sweet and slightly tangy curd. When we visit Coimbatore, we make it a must to visit DB Road where  for a plate of delicious dahi puri. After I started doing chaats, I remembered those puris. As I had some puris, I prepared it at home. It was absolutely delicious and we enjoyed it a lot. Preparing these puris is very easy when you have all the ingredients at home. Before serving, remember to bring all the ingredients to the table, so that serving becomes easier. I have given step wise pictures to get a general idea of the chaat.
