Masala Aloo Puri


  • 2 medium potatoes (boiled and rested for 5-10 minutes and grated)
  • 2 cups wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup water (as required)
  • 2-3 tbsp oil (for dough)
  • 1 tbsp red chilli powder
  • 1/2 tbsp turmeric powder (haldi powder)
  • 1-2 tbsp carom seeds (ajwain)
  • 2 tbsp coriander leaves (chopped) (dhaniya leaves)
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil for frying


  1. Mix potatoes, flour, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, oil,carom seeds, coriander leaves and salt in a bowl.
  2. Now little by little add water by mixing it with all other ingredients to make bit hard dough.
    (Remember the dough should not be too soft or too hard , otherwise your poori won’t puff-up properly)
  3. Now make small balls out of the dough and roll out one by one poori from it in small circular shape.
    (Your poori must be bit thick not too thin)
  4. Heat oil in a deep bottom pan/ kadhai , to check whether the oil is ready for frying , drop a small piece of dough in oil and if it comes up in few seconds then oil is ready for frying.
  5. Now drop one poori at a time in oil.(Number of poori to be fried at a time depends upon size of pan/kadhai)
  6. When poori puffs-up then turn it and fry from other side for few seconds on medium-low flame.

Repeat the same process to fry other poori.
Serve hot with yogurt.
