Every Indian knows what poori is. There are some other versions of poori available in the country like bhature, luchi etc. In some regions, some people prefer to add some spices to make this poori. In India, these deep-fried flatbreads are served as a light meal or breakfast item. It can be served with any type of curries of your choice. But in general, it is either served with rasiley aloo curry (often called as bhandare wale aloo sabji) and aamras (prepared with mango pulp). So I am not gonna talk about these two dishes. Of course, these two items are the most popular side dishes for poori. But there are many other dishes what many people love a lot with pooris. So what is the best vegetarian side dish for poori apart from rasiley aloo curry & aamras?
Here is a list of 5 tasty vegetarian side dishes for puri
Paneer chole masala
Chole masala is a popular Punjabi dish and when it is prepared with paneer then it is called paneer chole masala. I love both of these two delicious items. Poori is more enjoyable when it is served with paneer chole masala. A weekend will be very special when the morning starts with paneer chole masala and poori. What do you say? Is it not true?
Aloo gobi dry
Aloo gobi dry is a delicious North Indian dish. People love it with any type of Indian flatbread. Did you ever try it with poori? Whoever love dry sabj with poori, will definitely love this aloo gobi dry curry. I tried it with almost every type of Indian flatbread. It is equally enjoyable with all type of flatbreads.
Dhaba style dal palak
When winter comes, then we always try a lot of winter special dishes. This dhaba style dal palak is such a type of dish what you will not see at every roadside dhaba. But I tried it at a Roadside dhaba in Haryana. It was super enjoyable. There was also a local restaurant in Rohini, Delhi where I tried it for the first time with poori. It was so delicious.
Nowadays matar is available throughout the year. You can buy green peas anytime and make matar paneer at home. But in case you are not interested to make then you can find at almost every restaurant where North Indian food dishes are served. Many people also love poori with matar paneer.
Did you try palak paneer with poori? If you loved it then you will definitely enjoy pooris with aloo palak. I find it the best side dish to have with puri. It is very special and can be easily made at home. It is almost similar to palak paneer except potato is there instead of paneer. Though most people prefer palak paneer. But I love potato in curry with have with pooris. That is why I mentioned aloo palak instead of palak paneer.
