Poori Masala

I am sure all my readers are aware of my love for cereals. I can eat cereals for any meal of the day. Sometimes if I don't have any leftovers in the fridge I used to have cereals for lunch. I know it's weird !!! But eating it any time of the day is fine with me. We usually take cereals for breakfast everyday. But only during weekends I cook something else. Once 'A' got so bored of cereals and asked me whether I can make his favorite poori masala. As usual I couldn't deny his request and started myself preparing it.

Recipe Source : My Mom


For poori

Wheat Flour - 1 cup
All purpose Flour - 1 cup
Oil - 1 Tbs
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Water - 1/2 cup

For Masala

Potatoes - 1/2 kg
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Onions - 2
Green chillies - 4
Ginger - 1 small piece
Dry red chilli bits - Few

Method :

To make poori: Add the water and mix the dough. Make small balls. Then roll in flour and roll out into thin rounds and deep fry in oil ( preferably coconut oil ).

To make Masala: Wash the potatoes well. Put in pressure cooker with level water and cook with weight for 10 minutes. Peel and mash coarsely. Heat Oil. Add onions. When the onions are transluscent, add little water and salt and boil. Add the potatoes and mix well.

Ps: For any measure you use, remember equal quantities of wheat flour and All purpose flour.

  8. @ Vidhya : It's been ages after I am making these poori. I always try to avoid deep fried dish. Using equal amount of wheat flour and All purpose flour is the trick to avoid the poori's absorbing oil.
