Rava – 1 tbsp (optional)
Salt – 1/2 tsp
Water – 1/2 cup (aprroximately)
Oil – For frying
For Masala:
Potatoes (boiled) – 3
Onion (thinly sliced lengthwise) – 1

Mustard seeds – 1/2 tsp
Channa dal – 2 tbsp
Split urad dal – 1 tbsp
Curry leaves – a few

Oil – 2 tbsp

Method of Preparation:
For Puri:
Mix wheat flour, rava, salt and water to get a smooth dough. The should be slightly stiff.
Cover and set aside for half an hour. Divide the dough into small balls.
Roll the ball into thin circular shapes (palm size).
Heat oil in a pan and and deep fry the puris, slightly press them inside the oil and turn them once until golden brown.
Drain them on a paper towel.
Serve hot with masala.
For Masala:
Heat oil in a pan and add the mustard seeds.
After they splutter add asafoetida, curry leaves, channa dal, and urad dal.
Fry them till they become gloden yellow and add the green chillies followed by ginger, garlic and onions.
Fry till they become translucent and add the tomatoes followed by salt.
When the tomatoes become soft, add the turmeric powder and sambar powder.
Fry for 2 minutes and add some water.
When the water starts to boil and the potatoes by mashing them.
Simmer it for 5 minutes and garnish with coriander leaves.
I like to add lot of onions for the masala. Also I like to add lots of urad dhal and channa dal to get the crunchy feel.
I like add little sambar powder for the masala to give slight variation. If you dont want to add the sambar powder you can add one more green chilly.
Also for puris adding rava is totally optional. It will help to keep the fluffiness of the puris.
While rolling puris, instead of touching wheat flour (to avoid stickiness) I like to put by touching a drop of oil.
