Farali Poori | Kuttu Ki Puri Recipe – Gluten free and Vegan deep fried flatbread apt for the fasting peroid.
While I know several people, both young and old who observe fasting on auspicious days, it is more of feasting for me! I literally cannot stay away from delicious food and the thought of fasting stays away.
This year though I started fasting on some auspicious days and took only the food stuffs that are allowed.But that came after some retrospect!
I always wonder if one is fasting, it means not eating anything ,right! Then when I tried to do a 100% fast, I realized that I did not have the energy to do all the work and observe the fast simultaneously!
That was the day when I had to run errands, go out to get some stuffs for the kids project, cook for the rest of the family,wash and clean and do all the other stuffs relating to running a household with 2 kids and 2 elderly people and not to mention a husband who seems to be married to the office! Just the thought of it all made me weak on my knees!
Then once again realization dawned in! Maybe the fasting food is more for sustenance rather than for taste!
I ate a little of the foods allowed and carried on with the work which got done without a hitch.
One such dish is the Farali Poori which is made with ingredients that are allowed to be taken when one is observing a fast.
Though I did not have this one on a fasting day, I made it one Sunday when the kids could have a leisurely breakfast and poori is always welcome at the table.
