The festival of Diwali is here and we are celebrating it with much fun and enthusiasm. If you look around, you will find houses decorated with lights, rangoli and more. What adds on to the festivities is food. We indulge in various types of sweet and savoury dishes including chole bhature, samosa, gulab jamun and more. In fact, we go on a bingeing spree, keeping all our guilt feelings aside. While we buy some of our favourite sweets and snacks from our favourite shops in town, other dishes we love to make at home. During this time of the year, you will find people making barfi, laddoo, namkeen etc in abundance. Considering this, we bring you a popular snack recipe that will make Diwali a delicious affair. It's known as verki poori.
Verki Poori is basically fried, flaky snack that looks and tastes much like Maharashtrian Chirote. The only difference is chirote has a sweet flavour, whereas, verki poori taste salty. This recipe has been shared by food vlogger Ananya Banerjee on her YouTube channel (named Ananya Banerjee). So, without much ado, let's get into the recipe.
