Today it’s 14th November, Oh my gosh, it’s children’s day and I guess there would be no ideal time to post this gorgeous poori masala on my blog, if it’s not today. Because my little son who is pretty fuzzy and choosy about his food, loves and adores poori masala like anything. Though his likes and dislikes keep changing over a period of time, poori has been in his favorites list since several months. In my normal breakfast life I usually opt for some healthy, filling and wholesome food and poori gets it’s place at the end. Meaning it shows up on breakfast table only once or probably twice in a month.
My little kindergartner who was longing for his affectionate and delicious poori with potato masala ordered (!! Yes you read it right ORDERED) me to cook it for lunch last week. Also, one of my valuable reader has humbly requested poori masala recipe since a while. So for me it’s a win-win situation where I get accolades from my son and a food for this awesome internet space.
There are bunch of things that I love in this poori masala, but at the top of this list is it’s saucy look. Unlike dry version of poori bhaji, it’s saucy and thick. The grated carrot, onion, green chillies work in a big way to make the dish gorgeous visually and flavor-fully. I like to mash up half of the potatoes so that masala gets nice consistency and rest of it would go like big chunks. Depending upon the seasonal availability you can add handful of green peas or dill leaves which enhances the taste and it looks damn colorful.
My boy, my little bundle of joy was jumping with happiness and had his servings of poori to the full and it made my cooking self satisfied. 🙂 🙂
