Potato Masala For Puri / UrulaiKizhangu Masala

Everyones favourite is potatoes. This is the magic of the potatoes. You will hardly find anyone who dislikes them.Kids love to have potatoes.My little one is not exceptional too.He likes anything made from potatoes and me too.So it a friendly root to me.And also they're high in starchy carbohydrates .But if you are trying to cut extra fat just avoid preparing with more fats such as butter and also avoid deep fries.A baked potato contains lots of vitamin in it.I usually make traditional potato masala for puri.But if I like to have something spicy I prefer this one.Really its a best combo for puri and chapati.I learnt this from my MIL.Give it a try.
