Poori Masala - South Indian Style

Poori is my daughter's all time favourite. In South India we make the potato masala a little differently. It is very simple to make and this masala can be used to make masala dosas as well.


5 Big potatoes (boiled and coarsly mashed)
1 big onion
1/4" piece ginger
2 green chillies
few curry leaves
fresh corriander leaves
juice of 1 lemon
1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
Hing/ Aesofotida
1/4 teaspoon mustard seeds, chana dal, jeera seeds
1 cup water


Heat oil in a pan. Add the mustard seeds, chana dal, jeera seeds, ginger, chopped green chilies, curry leaves and hing. Add chopped onions and fry them till they become tender. Add the potatoes and turmeric powder. Add water and let it boil. Add salt as required and the chopped corriander. Remove the pan from the flame. After 5 minutes add lemon juice and mix well. Serve it along with Hot poories.
