Bread Aloo Dahi Bara With Gulab Jamun (bread And Potato Dumplings Served With Spicy Curd And Gulab Jamun)

In Northern India, ‘Chaat’ is indispensible in any wedding function. In Every wedding you will find a crowded “chaat Corner’’ serving a variety of these sweet and savoury dishes. The Idea of making Bread aloo dahi bara came to me when I had ‘Pav chaat’ in one of my cousins’ wedding. The bread pieces were deep fried and then served with curd and Tamarind Chutney. What I liked about it is that, it is quite easy to make and does not require any preparation, like soaking and grinding lentil (like we do traditionally). The trick of my recipe is that it is served with Gulab Jamun, which gives you a sweet and creamy bite.
