Dahiwale aloo with rajgara puri for vrat

Dahiwale Aloo is a dish made with potatoes cooked in a yogurt-based gravy, and is often made during religious fasting periods such as vrat (Hindu fasting days) when certain foods are avoided. Rajgara Puri, on the other hand, is a type of unleavened bread made with rajgara flour, which is typically used during fasting days.
