Poori Masala | Potato Masala for Puri

Whenever we go out to eat, we insist that my patti / grandmother also comes with us. She would happily oblige and come with us and would always order Poori Masala. The pleasure in her eyes when eating the Poori is just amazing.It is a joy to see her enjoying Poori Masala like a child. It has been 6 month since I lost my patti and her memories are just overflowing every time I make her favorite recipe.

Coming to the Poori Masala | Potato Masala for Puri, it is one of the easiest recipe to make and is so flavorful. It is made using just the basic ingredients and potato is the star of the dish. My little one loves this Poori Masala | Potato Masala for Puri and says that Poori is incomplete without this potato masala.


There are times, when I make something else like this Bombay Chutney or Benarasi Aloo Matar. But for my son, nothing tastes the same like this simple potato side dish. I made this Poori masala last week along with the spinach poori for dinner. The green color of the poori along with the yellow color of the Potato Masala was eye catching.

Even though I make this Poori Masala very often, it took me this long to update my old post and post it with some fresh pictures. I again have to thank Valli for having this amazing theme of ‘Redo Old Post’ each month as it gives me an opportunity to go back to many of my old recipes and update them.

  1. I prepare similar recipe in Bangla we call it aloo chauchari, it is a simple recipe made up with panch phoran, tomato and green chillies and it’s prepared with raw potato and added peas. Your boiled potatoes recipe with added spices is delicious and boiled potatoes make the recipe quick. Very good blend of spices and tricks for quick serving.

  2. I enjoy this theme too Sandhya, as it gives us a chance to read back on those old posts and refresh our memory. So nostalgic..the dishes look sinful and so nicely done!

  3. This potato gravy sabji is a perfect combination with palak poori. It is our brunch recipe whenever we have palak at home. Looking fantastic and I am drooling over it.
