Thiranga(tri-color) puri

Thiranga puri

One of my favourite moments of Independence day is flag hoisting. Singing the national anthem and seeing the flag dangling freely and proudly in air brings some kind of patriotic feeling. Also its time to sweeten our taste buds with the candies and biscuits.

Lining up the dough like a flag with a blueberry in middle.

National Flag symbolises a country. There are three colors in a flag with blue wheel in the middle. In the national flag of India the top band is of Saffron colour, indicating the strength and courage of the country. The white middle band, indicates peace and truth with Dharma Chakra. The last band is green in colour shows the fertility , growth and auspiciousness of the land.

I made this puri to represent the Flag. This idea is from my friend who once prepared this puri and told that her mother used to prepare this on Independence day.


Wheat flour
Beet Root

Puree beet root and spinach. If the beetroot is hard, boil first and then puree. Prepare 3 doughs with chapathi flour. One with beetroot puree, other with spinach puree and third dough is plain one.

Roll each dough into a long threads and arrange them closely in the order. Cut into small pieces and make small balls. Flatten each ball and fry in oil. Serve with curry. A healthy and easy way to Celebrate our Independence Day.

Our patriotic meal
