So I kept seeing these hot pink deep fried discs, and being a curious eater, I had to just stop at a stall and sample them for myself. I didn’t know at the time, but the vendor later told me that they were puris, or deep fried pieces of dough – similar to a deep fried tortilla. They have plenty of puris in India as well, but I had never seen them in any color like hot pink. They were not that tasty, they were mostly greasy, and would have been better along with some kind of curry. I’m not sure if they were meant to be eaten plain or if they were supposed to be eaten with another more flavorful dish.
Luckily the vendor also had onion pakoras, or deep fried onion fritters. Though extremely greasy and salty, his onion pakoras were excellent in flavor and a wonderful Nepali street food (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pf493MCi5rA) salty snack!
