Masala Puri

Masala Puri chaat is a famous street food in Karnataka. This chaat is a very Spicy, yet flavorful street food style snack. For long time, I kept postponing making masala puri post. The masala we prepare for masala puri chaat with green peas can be used as side dish for chapathi/puri/dosa as well. The complete video with detailed step by step instructions have been given below. You can serve with some sweet chutney if you want. I served as such. It will be spicy and delicious. Kindly note that “serve Masala Puri Chaat as soon as we prepared” Or Else The Puris Become Soggy. In that case, add some puris on top for crunchiness
