Meethi puri/Sweet indian bread


While writing about meethi puri I am nostalgic about childhood days and missing my daddy,but its life and it goes on.There’s a story to tell here way back to 30 years travelling by train was a big deal if it was long distance and to travel from Mumbai to Banaras it took more than 24 hours and in that time maa use to make these sweet puri for snack as kid kept demanding for something ,we use to keep nibbling them the whole journey.This puri would stay fresh till 3 days in that hot summer as well.In Purvanchal region small festivals are incomplete without these meethi puri as it is served as bhog to Diety.Made meethi puri on occasion of saptami which falls in the month of sawan where Goddess Durga is praised by keeping fast and cooking in midnight before the dawn,this is quite ineresting as the next day kitchen is kept closed and members eat all the pakwans cooked in midnight.A simple recipe with wheat flour and sugar been used,while I am writing down this blog let me tell its pouring heavily here,which makes the weather more pleasant today,had gone to the nursery today and brought some plants which I am sharing with you just a random click
