Masala Puri

After browsing many recipes from different sources for masala puri I ended up in this recipe by customizing it to our taste.I might have tried around 15-16 different recipes.Some recipe had used Star anise and some other used fried gram. Some used potato and some used Red chilly powder.I was totally confused with recipe.  because of that I had stopped trying at home and used to have it at our favorite chat shop in namma bengaluru. But after moving here I had less option and has to continue my research .And finally landed at this.I have decided that I will not continue my research anymore and stick to this. he he he he:).

No no I was just kidding, I will definitely try if I come across interesting recipe and update it.

So lets start,

You Need To have:

For Ragda:

1 cup green peas/Batani
1/4 cup green gram/hesaru kalu
1 bunch of coriander leaves/Kothambari soppu
1/2 bunch fresh mint/Pudina
1/2 inch ginger/shunti
4-5 garlic/belluli
1 onion/nirulli
small piece of cinamon/chakke (Too much use can really spoil taste of masal puri)
2-3 tamarid flakes/hunse esalu
1-2 cloves/Lavanga
5-6 black papper/olle menasu
1 tsp garam masala
1 tsp jeera powder
1 tsp coriender powder
1 tsp rice flour
1 tsp wheet flour
2 tsp oil
salt to taste

For Garnishing:
10-15 chat puris
1 cup Boiled Green peas(boiled with salt)
1/2 cup fine sev
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup finely chopped tomato
1/4 cup finely chopped coriander
1/2 cup grated carrot
1/4 cup curd
1 tsp red chilly powder
1 tsp salt
5-6 tsp sweet chutney
5-6 tsp green chutney



Soak green peas and green gram for about 8-10 hours atleast.Pressure cook them by adding salt for about 4-5 whistles.
Add less water for green gram as it cooks faster comapre to green peas. Once pressure goes of, divide green peas into equal part. one part goes into ragad preparation and remaining into Masal puri Garnishing.

Fry onion with oil until onion raw smell dissappear.

Put cooked green peas, green gram,fried onion, coriander leaves, mint leaves, ginger,garlic,green chilies,cinamon,cloves,peppers,tamarind,jera powder and coriander powder in mixer jar. Grind them into smooth paste.add water if required.

Put this ground masala in thick bottomed vessel and add water to make it thiner and bring it to boil.Add garam masala to it.

Dissolve wheet flour and rice flour in water to make paste.add this to above masala(This really thickness the gravy). simmer and let it boil for 20-30 mins.Still in between to avoid lumps.

This gravy has to be on flame all the time until its served. so if gravy thicknes after certain time, then add water and get right consistency again.


Take 5-6 chat puris and crush them on serving plate as shown.

.Add few boiled green peas on them.

Spread prepared ragad on this.(around 1 ful cup is required).

Granish with Onion,tomato,carrot and coriander. End with 1 tsp each of curd, sweet chutney, green chutney. finely sprinkle red chilly powder and salt. serve immiditely.
