Poori Masala is my fav since childhood days and I remember ordering it everytime we visit hotel Annaporna and now mittu takes after me :) This potato masal can used as stuffing for masala dosa too or can be accompanied with poori.

My Notes :
- If you prefer you can add a tsp of gram flour to make the masal thick.
- You can also add a tsp of finely chopped ginger while tempering. It not only enhances the flavour it also helps for digestion and gastric issues.
- You can skip tomato and add veggies like peas, carrot etc.
