There is an idiom in English ‘Time flies’…, that’s totally correct. Few months back there was discussion going on among all the blogging marathoners about September mega marathon and here it is… September Mega Marathon
If you are regular at my blog, You must be aware of by now that I regularly take part in blogging marathon. In a year there are two mega marathons… In April and September, where all the participants have to post everyday except Sundays under a theme. This time in September mega marathon, Valli has given three themes which include
- A to Z Indian flat breads (excluding dosa, crepes and pancakes)
- A to Z International flat breads
- A to Z Indian breads (includes dosa, crepes and pancakes)
I selected Indian flatbreads as for a long time I have been planning to do some posts on flatbreads, but that always takes a back seat. So this was like an opportunity for me.
For the last two months, I was very busy due to some of my family commitments. I couldn’t plan to take part in this mega marathon, though I wanted to. So I didn’t sign for it but somehow my I was feeling very bad for not participating. Yesterday, I had a casual talk with Valli about it and expressed my desire to take part in it. I knew that it won’t be possible as neither I had signed in for marathon nor had I made any preparations for it. Not even the list. To my surprise, she agreed to allow me to be a part of it on the condition that I’ll be regular in my posts…. Omg! I couldn’t believe for a while. Gave a second thought…. Will I be able to do?? Then decided to do it…. Vaise bhi,I do most of my things last minute 😁😁.
So here I’m…… Kick starting this month’s mega marathon with A for Achari Masala Poori.
Sometimes back, I attended a brunch at one of my friend’s house, who is from Rajasthan. They had arranged a cook especially from Rajasthan for preparing that scrumptious and elaborate brunch that was hosted to celebrate her daughter’s wedding. As I’m very fond of Rajasthani food, so loved whatever was served. Among many other things, I enjoyed the achari masala poori alot. Since my Sunday breakfast is mostly pooris, so I have made this achari masala poori a number of times since then.
For making this poori, I use leftover mango pickle masala. That way my masala also gets used up. I just add the pickle and salt to the whole wheat flour and knead a dough. Since it already has lot of spices and oil in it, so there is no need to add anything extra in it. If you don’t have that masala, then achari masala is available in the market, you may use that also. These pooris are so good that you even don’t need any accompaniment with it and can just enjoy with a cup of hot tea. That makes it ideal to pack in tiffin or carry it along while traveling.
Here is my A lettered post for the day…. Achari Masala Poori.
