Dal puri has a very special place in our kitchen, making dal puri means there has to some auspicious day.these are specially made on NaagPanchami..or when one has newly wed bride in the house.As the name says dal puri but it’s not puri actually, they are stuffed paratha.. in some places in Uttar Pradesh parathas are also called puris..so dal puri.
