Poori masala recipe – without potato . Poori masala recipe to pair with poori, chapati, idli and dosa too.

Usually in South Indian restaurants when we order poori, we always get the delicious Potato masala. The similar masala will also be served inside masala dosa too. I love that poori masala very much. I have posted the potato masala for poori with video in Jeyashri’s kitchen. Apart from this I have posted North Indian style Aloo masala to pair with poori and chapati. Even this masala goes well with Jeera rice too.

Sometimes when we run out of potato or if we have some people around, who don’t eat potato, you can make this poori masala.

This masala tastes exactly like the the one with potato. We can add peas and carrot to this masala. Apart from poori, this pairs well with Dosa and idli too.
