No introduction is required for Poori masala. It is one of the favourite dish for most of us. Its my granddaughter's favourite breakfast. A very popular breakfast dish in most of the restaurants in India. This is having much less calories compared to the breakfast prepared with raw rice since it is made with atta. Deep frying the pooris are little unhealthy for us, but if we have it once a while then it should not be a problem. Poori Masala is a very perfect combination though we can have other side dishes too for Poori.

  2. Madam,

    I am a novice in cooking and I was helping my wife to try new dishes.

    We made poori masala and it was smelling delicious and tasting very good.

    Thanks for your good guidance.

    Vedantham and Sumithra.

  3. hello mam.. is maida must for this recipe? if i use only wheat flour will it make any difference? please let me know. also the puri dough should it be softer than chapathi dough? please let me know. thanks in advance.

  4. Actually you have asked to add maida in the procedure but no maida in the list
    Can you pls clarify this?

    1. Sorry Jothi, its a typo. I have corrected the recipe. thanks

  5. How to make soft chappathi? Please tell me mami

    1. Hi Ambika, for chapati, we need to knead a soft dough with atta. Also another main trick is the tawa should be smoky hot and just cook the chapati on one side for 10 seconds and flip it to other side. repeat the process till the chapati is cooked. do not keep the chapati for more time in one side. Also when it is half done, we can directly put it on the flame so that it would get fluffy and soft. If you are using a induction hob, you can apply little oil when you flip the chapatis.

  6. when ever I made puri,its not came out puffy.could u tell me the tip for getting puffy puri?
