This is also something I have not tried so far. I tried making poori and masala with potatoes (called saagu in few places).
1. Potatoes – 4 to 5
2. Onions – 2 to 3 (depends also on size of potatoes)
3. Green chillies – 6 to 7 (depends on how spicy they are)
4. Urad dal (black gram) – 2 spoons
5. Salt – 1 spoon
6. Besan powder (gram flour or chickpea flour) – 1/2 spoon
Boil the potatoes and peel the skin off. Mash the potatoes (not into very fine pieces).
Slice the green chillies.
Cut onions into slices and not into small pieces.
Heat oil in a pan. To that add urad dal till it gets friend. Then add sliced green chillies and then add sliced onion. Fry till the onions become golden in colour. Now to this add the mashed potatoes. Mix the contents and add salt to taste. Normally a spoon should be good enough for the portion made. Add little bit of water.
Leave it to boil few times. Add 1/2spoon besan powder and mix well. Leave it to boil for 2-3times. Stir the contents.
Depending on taste one could either make it completely watery or dry up the water and make it with good consistency.
Now the masala alias saagu is ready to be consumed with pooris. But yes, I screwed up pooris. Only 1 out of 12 came nice and fluffy.
