Dar ni Pori Recipe
Dal ni Pori (Sweet Pastry)
Original recipe from my Mother Parin Homi Munshi and dedicated to her.
Also known as Dar ni Pori, Daar ni Poli in gujarati.
Dal ni Pori is a pastry to be served at tea-time.
A Zoroastrian custom at weddings: 5-7 Dal ni Poris are sent by the Bride’s family to the Bridegroom’s family.
On Ava roj(day) and Ava mahinoh(month) Poris are sent and eaten. The devout parsis go to the sea or any form of water to pray and pay respect to the water that nourishes the body, while enjoying the Dal ni Pori.

Pastry: Mix together all the ingredients and knead with enough water to make a soft dough. Cover with wet cloth and let stand for atleast 3 hours. Overnight is better. Roll out in 3 big balls. Click here to see Video for making pastry
