H - Halwa Nagori Poori Sabzi

Halwa Nagori Poori Sabzi is a typical breakfast combination  served on the streets of Old Delhi.

Halwa is made of semolina which we generally make but Nagori Poori is what was new for my BM friends when they were in Delhi for our 75th BM Meet .We had left as early as 8 am to be in the narrow lanes of Old Delhi for Exploring the Flavours and taking a food tour of Chandni Chowk .

We took two halts to enjoy some other street food before we reached the popular Shyam Sweets at Chawri Bazaar . We ordered the Bedmi Sabzi and Nagori Poori with Halwa . Nagori pooris are small semolina pooris which are crunchy yet melt in the mouth kinds . A Sooji halwa with cardamom and saffron is served with this Poori . The halwa is loaded with ghee but going to Delhi and not eating this halwa would be a shame . Seriously the complete platter of the sabzi achaar , halwa and pooris is mind blowing . Trust me my BM buddies who ate this must be drooling , am I right ?

The Aloo Sabzi is made in pure ghee and that’s the beauty of the dish . Tempered with the whole spices the fenugreek and fennel seeds give a wonderful aroma and flavour to it . Yogurt is used to thicken the gravy . A special carrot pickle is served in winters while a mango pickle is substituted in summers . These pickles are made fresh and last just two to three days . They hardly have oil , but you could make the pickle with oil , like me which shall last you a while .

A delicious street food platter from Old Delhi which can be enjoyed for breakfast or lunch .I am posting all the recipes of this platter, so go ahead , try it and let me know how you like it .
