    Hi anju, This morning i made your recipe but with a slight modification. I used rotis instead of puris & chat masala instead of chilly powder & garam masala. it came out delicious. i & my son liked it.


    hey all..i tried tortillas instead of puris and it turned out perfect n less time consuming too..

    It's better if we use pan cake instead of deep fried puri's, it give more taste nd make it a low calorie snacks.


    the dish is nice,we can use chapathi made of maida(wheat is more healthy substitute)instead of poori for alow calorie snack.


    This is tasty but very oily, and heavy as it is to be deep fried in puris.
