Here is a tongue-tickling treat the brings back sweet memories of chaat and roadside food! Crispy Puri topped with Masala Aloo pleases your palate with sheer variety – in texture and taste.

The crispness of the puris is a sheer contrast to the succulence of the potato mixture, which is spiced up with everyday ingredients like onions, green chillies and lemon juice. It is the final touch of Koro Sambhar that really boosts the taste and aroma of this dish, making it an extremely special treat.

Enjoy the Crispy Puri with Masala Aloo immediately upon preparation. To get really smooth mashed potatoes quickly and easily, you can blend the cooked potatoes in the mixer.

Have a go at other off-beat puri-based treats like the Mango Sev Puri and Italian Sev Puri .
