Tomato puri

Tomato puri is a puri flavoured with tomatoes and mint leaves.Yesterday when I was thinking that I should prepare something new type of puri with the combination of Aamras my sight fell on Anjana ji’s recipe in the facebook page updates and I visited her blog,liked it at the first sight and I immediately prepared it without wasting time.Anjana ji’s blog Maayeka is a vegetarian blog with wonderful recipes.I have many in my list to do recipes from her blog.My daughter sanju liked this puri so much that I had to prepare it the next day too.This puri is tangy and spicy and blended well with Aaamras since Aamras is sweet.Stay tuned for Aamras,coming up next.
