Dahi Sev Batata Puri or Dahi Puri is a popular snack or chaat item which is especially popular in Maharastra. Dahi Puri is simply yummy with sweet, sour and spicy flavors in it. The puris are filled with boiled potatoes, chutney, onion and dahi. You can use tamarind and green coriander chutney for making Dahi Puri. If you follow me on Instagram you know I love chaats and street food and especially Pani Puri. I start craving for it if I don’t have it for long.
This Dahi Sev Batata Puri Recipe video is also very special because this is my first recipe video and let me tell you this blogging has made me learn so many new things. I was a complete zero in all this video making and editing thing but I thought of diversifying into vlogging as well and thus, my research and study about video making and editing started. I am glad I made my first recipe video ALL by myself and posted it with lots of thoughts and fear in my mind but I am glad as the comments and response are really encouraging.
So, if you are reading this do check out the video and subscribe to my channel.
Sundays are usually chicken curry day at my place. Fish curry is made rarely may be because everyone likes only “Rohu” fish at my place which requires time and a lot of patience to eat it. I first time had Pomfret Masala Fry in Daman at a shack and I really liked it. This spicy masala coated pomfret fry was melt-in-mouth and with a dash of lemon, it tasted absolutely delicious. I tried the deep fried version of pomfret fry at Tarkarli (locally called: pamphlet) but didn’t like it much.
Fried Pomfret or Pomfret Tawa Fry:
I will anytime choose Tawa fry version over deep fried for not only health reasons but also because I like that spicy masala that coats the fish. You can also make Tandoori pomfret by cooking the fish in tandoori masala, this would be a healthier option. Let me share some basic benefits of adding fish in your diet. Fishes are the rich source of essential fatty acids (omega-3 fatty acids)and minerals. It also contains a good amount of iodine which is critical for the thyroid gland. Thus, Pomfret is good for eyesight, healthy hair and skin.
On one such Sunday morning, we went to the fish market to buy “Rohu” fish but I also got tempted to try making Pomfret Fish Masala Fry at home. It’s really simple and easy to make. The fish gets cooked in 10-15 minutes and marination is advisable for 15 minutes. Cooking this fish in mustard oil adds more flavor to the dish. Use non-stick pan or kadhai to prepare Pomfret Masala Tawa fry so that the masala don’t stick in the pan or kadai.

Egg chop is a lip smacking deep-fried snack option. It is made from boiled egg and boiled potatoes. I first time had egg-chop in Varanasi where it is available on almost on all the egg stalls so you can easily get your hands on it. These deep fried ball shaped chops are bound to attract you. Whenever I am in Varanasi, I try to relish kachoris, samosas, chaats, sweets and yes…egg-chop. The mention of egg-chops makes me nostalgic and I start missing Banaras. It’s very popular in Bengal too by the name of “Dimer Chop or Egg Devil”. I read that they make it in two ways either the egg is coated with mashed potatoes or minced meat. If you love eggs like me then do check this recipe of Egg Pepper Fry.
Egg chop is one of my favorite snack and must-have item when I am in Varanasi. The egg chops topped with green coriander chutney, chopped onion and some chaat masala sprinkled over it tastes simply amazing. It is very easy to make and you can be served to your egg-e-terian guests too. It’s a hit item for the kid’s tiffin box also. You can make some changes in the recipe like making the mashed potatoes more or less spicy as per your preference. However, to give it more crispy texture people roll the chops in bread crumbs before frying since I was not having crumbs prepared so I added cornflour to the potato mixture which acted as a binding agent during frying. I strongly feel that the green coriander chutney enhances the taste of these chops. Will be sharing the recipe of green coriander chutney on the blog.
Do give it a try and let me know your feedback or how you make it in your home. If you try this recipe and post it on Instagram don’t forget to tag @savorytales.
Snack time usually becomes the junk eating time. I personally crave for some chaat, samosa, fried food along with my evening tea. Having said that it’s definitely not a good idea to eat all these due to the obvious health reasons. I recently experimented with sprouted moong dal to prepare a chaat version of it which turned out to be really good and tasty. The green or sprouted Moong Dal provides the required protein nutrient and at the same time, it’s delicious too. Give it a try to this Moong Dal chaat and let me know how was it.
