Chaina Ram Puri Sabzi is a classic North Indian breakfast combination that consists of puris (deep-fried bread) served with a flavorful vegetable curry. It is named after the renowned eatery, Chaina Ram Sweets, located in Old Delhi, India.
The puris in Chaina Ram Puri Sabzi are small, round breads made from a dough of whole wheat flour, water, and a pinch of salt. The dough is kneaded until smooth and then rolled into small discs, which are deep-fried until they puff up and turn golden brown. The result is a crispy and light bread that is the perfect accompaniment to the vegetable curry.
The vegetable curry, or sabzi, that accompanies the puris is typically made with a combination of seasonal vegetables. Common choices include potatoes, peas, carrots, beans, and cauliflower. The vegetables are cooked in a spiced tomato-based gravy, flavored with a blend of aromatic spices like cumin, coriander, turmeric, and garam masala. The curry is simmered until the vegetables are tender and the flavors have melded together.
Chaina Ram Puri Sabzi is often served with a side of tangy and spicy pickles, yogurt, and sometimes a sweet chutney for added variety of flavors. It is a popular breakfast or brunch option in North India and is enjoyed by people of all ages.
The combination of crispy puris and flavorful vegetable curry makes Chaina Ram Puri Sabzi a satisfying and wholesome meal. It showcases the rich culinary traditions of North Indian cuisine and has become a beloved dish for locals and visitors alike.
