masala poori recipe with step by step by photos – spicy and tasty pooris made with whole wheat flour and spices.

masala poori is a variation of poori. basically these are unleavened spiced fried whole wheat bread. spices are used in the dough which gives the poori a unique taste and flavor. there are also other variations of poori like the stuffed poori where potato or peas filling is stuffed inside the poori and then deep fried.

now speaking on pooris, there is another kind of a flaky fried bread that is very popular in north india and is called as kachori. the kachoris are stuffed with spiced lentil mixture, potato or peas stuffing. there are delicious snack to have accompanied with coriander chutney and tea. you can also check this urad dal kachori recipe.

this recipe of masala poori is from my home science notes. at home, we make another version of masala poori with fewer spices. masala pooris can be had just plain with indian chai or even with a potato or paneer sabzi.
