Poori Bhaji Aamras - Summer Seasonal special

Share with friends and family

 Poori Aamras and Aloo Bhaji is almost everyone's favorite in Maharashtra and Gujarat. There will hardly be anyone who wouldn't like this combo.  During the mango season, this made in heaven match features in my home quite a few times  but surprisingly it never made to the blog .

My dad and me love this combo a lot and it really surprises my husband as to how we enjoy puris with aamras . He will always say enjoy puris with Bhaaji and relish the aamras separately.  To each one their taste..but all said and done puri aamras is a delectable match . 

The recipe for Aamras and Puri is already there on the blog while that off this simple yet tasty Aloo Bhaaji or Sabji will be shared today with you all . Every household has an heirloom recipe for making the aloo sabji depending on the family's liking . I am going to share a very very easy recipe which has been our favorite always. Preethi my blogger friend has a delicious recipe of Adraki Aloo which will also pair well these puris . The aamras has a little milk added while the aloo sabji is purely vegan . If you want to make the entire combo vegan friendly,you can skip the milk while preparing the aam ras .

This combo is so popular  and a hearthrob that people swarm like bees at restaurants to enjoy. Some popular restaurants in Bombay have carved a niche for serving this delectable mini thali during the Mango Season and have been featured in various food magazines and shows for their superior quality and popularity.
