MaSaLa PuRi | Masala Puri

This time I have tried a different version of Karnataka Style Chaat item i.e, Masala Puri. I have already posted "Masala Puri " some time back. You can find that post here Masala Puri This one i have tried it has a different taste and look. Masala Puri has always been one of my favourite Chaat items. This is the typical one which I have tried here. This type can be found in roadside stalls. . Atleast here in US we have to make these at home only. So i will make both the recipes based on the ingredients i have in my kitchen . 

Ingredients for the Ground Masala Paste

  • HuriKadale/Hurgadle, Puffed gram, Dalia - 1/4 cup
  • Cinnamon sticks / Chakke - 2 - 3 small sticks
  • Clove / Lavanga - 4

  • Poppy Seeds / Gasgase - 1/2 tsp
  • Coriander seeds / Dhania - 1 tsp
  • Jeera - 1/2 tsp
  • 1 cup water
  • Salt to taste
Method to Ground Masala Paste
  • Make a powder of all the above ingredients except water & salt.
  • Then add water and blend it again for a smooth batter
  • Transfer into the pan. Add salt and bring to boil for 5 - 8 min(if it is too thick add one more glass of water. Consistency should be medium thick(Just like dosa batter)) keep stirring so that it wont stick into the pan.
  • Papdi Puri - 10 to 20
  • Green peas (frozen or dried soaked overnight) (normally i use frozen peas)
  • Large Onion - 1, Finely chopped
  • Carrot - 1 Grated
  • Tomato - 1 Finely chopped
  • Potato / Aloo - 4 boiled & mashed
  • Coriander leaves / Cilantro - Finely Chopped
  • Fine Sev
  • Green Chutney
  • Sweet Tamarind Chutney
  • Yogurt / Curds (if required)
  • Black Salt
  • Lemon Juice
  • Soak the Dried peas overnight. Then wash the soaked peas and pressure cook with enough water for about 3 whistles. Keep aside
To Serve
  • Crush the papdi onto a plate
  • Top with mashed potato & Peas
  • Pour a laddle full of Masala
  • Top with onions, carrots, tomatos on one by one
  • Sprinkle with green chutney, sweet chutney, yogurt, black salt, chaat masala, lemon juice on one by one

Just love Indian food!! Thanks for the recipe, YYYYYUUUUMMYYY!!! I wanted to share this, why don't you try it with this drink called purple. You must have heard about it since it's doing a lot of rounds in the celebrity circuit and is all over the news. Its tastes amazing with everything, try it and let me know if you liked it or not. It is a health drink which is made up of 7 fruits juice and is high on antioxidants and you know about antioxidants right? it prevents premature ageing, what else do growing women want huh, LOL!! If you want more information to check whether what I am saying is right you can get it at . You can get it at GNC and drug stores. Could not help sharing it!

Hi Mala,

Thank you so much for your recipe. I tried it out and the masala puri turned out pretty good. My wife and I were really impressed since we have been looking for a good recipe for a long time and hadn't found one - this was a huge hit.
