Dal Puri - Kheer

Now finally today I reached the state Bihar to make a thali from the cuisine. When I want to make a thali from this cuisine I came to know there are two types of thalis. One is a normal thali with rice, roti and dry and gravy curries usually this every day thali didn't contain any sweet. The second one is a festival thali which contain dal puri with gravy and dry curries chutney and kheer. Actually I wanted to make Litti choka with a thali. But when I spoke to my friend Shweta, she told me they didn't consider Litti choka as a meal means they didn't include this in a thali . She suggested me this festival thali. She used to feed me this food for some of there festivals like Chhath pooja and Diwali. Now I am going to try  this festival thali  from Bihar
Let's check What I made for this Bihari Festival thali..

3. Heat one and half tea sp ghee in a pan add cumin seeds, bay leaf fry for a while.
4. Then add chopped green chillies, chanadal with the water cover and cook till dal become soft. When take dal in between your fingers and press that should brake.
5. Now remove the lid and evaporate all the water to make the dal dry.
6. When the dal became dry(make sure there should not be any moisture in the dal), add garam masala, chopped coriander leaves and switch off the heat.
7. Mash the dal with hand well to make stuffing like puran poli  or you can grind it in the mixee also.
8. Now divide the wheat flour dough in to equal portions and make round balls out of the dough.
9. Roll the dough in to small puris, keep a tab sp full of chana dal mixture inthe middle of the puri close fro all sides and again from like a ball.
10. Now roll this dall stuffed balls in to a thick circles like stuffed paratas.
11. Deep fry like puris or tawa fry like parathas
