Puff of the Day #1801

Leyla and Mitch put together a sort of curry dinner this evening, supplemented with tortellini and the odd puffed bread Mitch is frying here. This is puri, which is made from a certain sort of dough flattened thin and flash-fried. After only a few moments in the hot oil, the bread starts to inflate, and ideally becomes a kind of crispy bread-balloon.

This was their first attempt at making puri, and it didn’t come out quite how they’d wanted; I had no preconception of what the food was supposed to be like, so I actually rather liked it – simple, but pleasant to eat, like monologuing bread can be.

Hopefully sometime soon I can repay Mitch and Leyla for the meal – I’ve been wanting to cook again for some time.
