Bedmi Puri | Urad Dal Poori Recipe
An Irresistible Dal based Puri!
Urad Dal Poori, also called Bedmi Puri is a very famous breakfast usually eaten in Delhi and some parts of Uttar Pradesh. Its often served with Potato Baji and Curd. In the conventional poori, we use only whole wheat flour, but here in Bedmi Puri, in addition to whole wheat flour, we are going to use urad dal also. This poori is also referred as bedmi Kachori, Urad Dal Kachori.
First we need to soak split urad dal for 5-6 hours and then grind it to paste and then add the paste to the wheat flour and along with spices and knead it to dough and then make poori with that dough. This is one method of making Bedmi Poori. Other way is to cook the ground urad dal paste and cook till it crumbles more like our paruppu usili. Then use that crumbled urad dal as a filling inside the poori and deep fry the pooris’. I have used the first method which is easy and it doesn’t go wrong. Also the taste is awesome.
Urad dal is rich in fibre, both soluble and insoluble, which is known improve our digestion. Rich in protein, fat and carbohydrates, urad dal is brimming with many health benefits. This simple lentil is full of iron, folic acid, calcium, magnesium and potassium, which makes this dal a perfect health package for pregnant women. It is also extensively used in various culinary preparations such as dosa, papad and vada. Considering the benefits of Urad Dal, we should all try and use it often in our diet.
