Methi Poori / Fried Fenugreek Leaves Poori

Hai friends, I love poori masala a lot, It is one of my favorite breakfast...Even though I love to have it daily, since it is deep fried I don’t have this often.

I found this recipe in one of the magazine. They have 30 more recipe for different types of poori given in that book. I have planned to make more recipe from that. I served it with a special potato masala which I will post in my coming post.

I am sending this recipe to Blogging Marathan Day 3 in the theme Winter Special.. Hope you love it..
