The key to making tasty masala puri and batata chips sabji at home are

For masala puri

  1. Firstly, I made puri dough with wheat flour and some gram flour. Gram flour enhances the taste of the poori but do not increase its amount too much. Also, I knead the puri dough with milk, which gives softness to the puri.
  2. In terms of masala, you may experiment with the spices as per your taste buds and increase or decrease the spice level according to your preference.
  3. Fry these pooris in hot oil so that they can easily puff. Also, fry them in small batches, preferably one at a time, so that they do not overlap each other.
  4. Lastly, the poori is loaded with all the spices and flavors, so it tastes good once it has cooled down.

For batata chips sabji

  1. If you are planning to make a dry variant, I would suggest chopping the potato chips into bigger pieces. Do not chop them finely.
  2. Instead of frying, you can pressure cook the potatoes separately and then use them in the recipe. I personally like the potatoes fried in oil.
  3. Lastly, if you have leftover potato sabji, you can use it to make paratha or even sandwich recipes
