Traditional Poori Masala / Puri Masala / Potato Masala for Poori

If we make poori, there should be potato masala with it…They both are the perfect match made in heaven I THINK…If you agree with it, I love you…It is made with potatoes, I added some peas because I love that..But traditionally they wont add peas so You can skip it if you want.

I have a version of poori masala which they serve in restaurants in my blog..It is a recipe given by my perimma..You can make it if you want..You can check it here…This is the version which they will traditionally serve with poori..And I will post the traditional poori soon..I hope you will love it and let me know what you think..

Preparation Time : 10 mins
Cooking Time : 40 to 45 mins
Serves : 4 to 5


Potato - 3 large peeled, cubed
