Radhaballavi ( Stuffed Chana Daal Poori ) With Niramish Aloo Dum

Radhaballavi or Stuffed Chana Daal Poori is undoubtedly is the favorite breakfast of a typical Bengali Household. This mouth watering delicacy found its way to the heart of many people just like me who despite not being a Bengali love this lip smacking Radhaballavi served with spicy aloo dum in a bowl of sal leaves . This recipe has got it’s name when the Zamindars family offered these stuffed pooris to Lord Krishna in their temples. Though Radhaballavi and Hing er Kachuri are referred interchangeably, there is a huge difference between them. The Hing er Kachuri is smaller in size and flavoured with hing and urad daal as stuffing. However, radhaballavi is made with chana daal paste, ginger, green chilli, fennel and bhaja masala.. In other words both are same with stuffing of different daals.
