Snackshot: Dahi Poori
Today's savory Snackshot comes to us from shnewell and Indika.
From the photographer's description:
"The dahi poori appetizer at Indika on Westheimer. Each one is like a little puff of deliciousness!"
The fried bread puffs called dahi poori are basically a vehicle for creative toppings. Although not currently on Indika's spring menu, dahi poori can be made at home if you have patience and a cupboard of Indian ingredients (which aren't that hard to find in Houston). After you've fried them up, scatter a few pomegranate seeds and toasted pine nuts on top along with a dollop of mint-coriander chutney and you're well on your way to replicating Indika's dahi poori in your own kitchen.
