Besan Ki Masala poori

Sharing is caring!

Besan ki Masala Poori or Besani Masala Poori is a poori made with Gram flour or Besan along with roasted spice powders. This makes a wonderful and ideal dish for weekend brunch.

If you have the spice powders ground, you can easily make for your weekday breakfast as well. As I have already mentioned, I decided to make this for our Sunday Brunch. I gave the recipe to Amma and Konda and watching over them making it. Along with this, I had another poori recipe lined up and Konda was going on saying that we can make it again for dinner so that she can click a better picture.

I was very clear that I wanted the clicking business to be completed in the morning as these dishes are hard to be clicked during night time. Even though 95% of my pictures are clicked during night with artificial light and I am very much comfortable, when it’s not be who’s clicking, I am little hyper over the lighting.

Anyway this poori stayed put in its shape before we could attack. We loved both pooris we made and naturally kids ask the same request for this to be repeated. Well, with 24 more pooris lined up, I don’t think I might come back to this any soon. Still it feels great to know the dish was liked by all.

This dish is for the BM#108, Week 2, where I am sharing AtoZ Indian Pooris.
