POORI MASALA / POTATO MASALA
Poori Masala is the most popular tiffin variety or breakfast item in India. Poori masala is nothing but the subji made of mashed potato along with onion and green chili . This poori masala is also called as potato masala. This same masala is used for masala dosa. And it can also be had as a side dish for roti.
