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..
Potato - 3 large peeled, cubed
Peas - 1/2 cup (I used Frozen)
Onion - 1 large sliced thinly
Green Chilli - 2 or to taste
Turmeric Powder - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil- 1 tblspn
Mustard seeds / Kaduku - 1 tsp
Cumin Seeds / Jeerakam - 1 tsp
Channa dal / kadalai paruppu - 1 tsp
Urad dal / Ulundu - 1 tsp
Curry leaves - 1 spring
Start by cooking the potatoes. Take cubed potatoes in a sauce pan and cover it with water untill the potatoes are just covered . Bring it to a boil, simmer and cook for 15-20 mins untill the potatoes are cooked completely. If there is so much water, you can drain, or keep it as it is..
Heat oil in a kadai and add all the seasoning ingrediants. Fry it for 1 min.
Now add in onions, green chilli, salt and turmeric and mix well. Cover and cook till it gets translucent..It will take around 5 mins.
Now add in the peas and mix well. Add in cooked potatoes along with any water in it.
Use a wooden spoon and start mashing the potatoes till it get the right consistency.Simmer it for 5 mins.
Serve it with poori.
