How to Make Poori masala recipe

  • For poori:
  • Sieve the flour together to ensure there are no lumps.
  • Make a well in the flour and pour water gradually. Bring together the flour in circular motions with your hand.
  • Once the flour is combined give it a knead and keep it covered with a damp kitchen towel in a warm place.
  • Meanwhile you could prepare the masala.
  • After some time knead the dough on an oiled surface till you get a smooth non-sticky dough of elastic like consistency.
  • Make small balls out of the dough and roll on a floured surface with a rolling pin just like how you`d roll out your roti or chapathi. Just make sure the size of the puri is smaller than the roti`s. This will help the poori fluff well.
  • Heat oil in a wok for deep frying. Ensure the oil is very hot before you slide in the discs/poori.
  • Slide the disk and flip when it puffs and turns golden brown.
  • For masala:
  • In a heavy bottom wok add oil and heat.
  • Temper the mustard seeds, cumin seeds, curry leaves and asafoetida. Add the cloves, cardamom, and garlic. Fry till you get the aroma ensuring the garlic is not burnt.
  • Add onion and brown it followed ginger and garlic paste. Cook it till the raw smell is gone.
  • Add the tomato and seasoning and let it cook till well mashed.
  • Add the mashed potato and peas and give a good stir.
  • You could let the vegetable cook on sim and serve as a solid dish or add some water and dilute it a bit. Garnish with coriander.
  • Serve with hot pooris and raita.
