Last week my husband's cousin and his wife visited us. In between our conversation she told me that she had a cookery show in one of the Kannada channels. She had prepared Aloo Poori along with some north Indian dish and the pooris were real soft and fluffy. I did not ask her how she prepared. I had prepared ' potato ambodo masala a few days ago. And i could not make it on the same day so i kept it in the fridge. I thought I prepare poori with this aloo masala for breakfast today. Here is the recipe.. Do try..


Wheat flour - 2 cups

Potatoes - 2 medium, boiled and mashed

Green chilly - 4

Ginger - 1/2 inch piece

Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp

Udad dal - 1 tsp

Asafoetidà - diluted - 1 tsp

Curry leaves - 1 sprig, chopped

Lemon juice - 1 tsp (optional)

Coriander leaves - 1 tbsp, finely chopped

Salt - to taste


Heat a tsp oil in a pan, add mustards, when it splutters add udad dal, crushed ginger and green chillies. Saute.

Then add mashed potatoes and salt, mix well. Remove from heat.

Now in a mixing bowl put some water and add wheat flour.

Then add potato mixture, combine well. Make a firm dough, adding little water to it.
Add coriander leaves, mix well.

Now make small balls and roll them with a roll pin to make pooris, about 4-5 inch diameters.

Then heat enough oil in deep bottomed kadahi.

Slid one poori at a time fry fluffy on both sides.

Serve AlooPooris for breakfast along with any spicy curries.
