Sharing is caring!

Indian Masala Poori is a delicious poori spiced with indian spices and flavours. This is a simple poori that can be paired with just curds and served for a party.

When it was the turn of I in the A to Z Indian Pooris, I didn’t have a choice at all other than Inippu poori. Inippu means Sugar in Tamil and I was somehow not very keen to make a sweet poori. So I was looking out to make another spicy version and couldn’t find any choice.

During that time, I happen to talk to Vaishali and when I asked if she has any idea, she suggested I could use Indian something and thus came about this poori. I simply added whatever spice I could think of. I had infused spiced water that I made for another dish and that made it all the more interesting.

The pooris were spicy and had a good feel to it. You can just dip in curds and enjoy. Since I had anyway made the side dishes for the other pooris on the menu, I had served it for these as well. These pooris are surely something I would love to make again.
