POTATO MASALA FOR POORI / POORI KIZHANGU RECIPE/ HOW TO MAKE POORI MASALA


POTATO MASALA FOR POORI / POORI KIZHANGU RECIPE/ HOW TO MAKE POORI MASALA

Poori is one of the staple food in south india. The perfect pair for poori is the potato masala. This potato masala is one of the easiest sidedish that we can make in jiffy. As the name says the main ingredient to make this gravy is potato. It is a mild spicy, flavourful and tasty gravy that pairs up not only with poori , also can serve with chapatti, definitely will tastes great.



But while serving with chapathi we can make it as thinner than the poori masala and can make it little spicier. This is just my personal preference. You can make it as per your wish.

Generally we add green chillies and tomatoes as chopped and sauté, but in this recipe I grind them and then add to the gravy. It will give nice taste and the green chillies will not come while eating.
