@Chaitra,

Taste of Masala Puri is not unique. It differs from one place to another! In places like Mumbai the Masala Puri will not be served with the gravy or masala. There is a huge difference in taste between the masala puris served within bangalore itself (Gaadis, Chat Centers, etc..)

Some people like their masala puris to be very spicy, some people like it sweet, some people like it dry. It all depends on what taste we are used to.

It would be better if we keep on tasting the gravy at least 8-10 times while cooking until we get the taste according to our taste buds.

According to me the recipe that I posted here tastes like the one we get in Bangalore Gaadis. I have received the same feedback from many people who have tried it!

Hi Veni,

I want to try this recipe today for my hubby who is a die hard fan of masala puri, and I have a question. I know you have mentioned that we need 2 cups of soaked beans. How much of dry beans would that be? around 1 cup? or do you mean 2 cups of beans, soaked? Just to be sure.

Love your blog!

Thanks in advance.

Ruchi Ruchi Adige said...

@Reena,

Yes, soak 1 cup of dry green peas to make the gravy as specified in the recipe.

I just tried your masala puri recipe - at 10 in the night, coz it looked yummmy and it had been ages since I had tasted it. Came out very good. Infact, I didn't make the chutneys and also I didn't have the puris, but still tasted great! Plus, I also added some chaat masala for extra taste. Thank you so much :)

Janaki said...

I am a very big fan of chats. Thanks for the masala gravy recipe. I tried once it is very tasty. As you said, I have added my date chutney and some bits and pieces to this to suit our taste buds :)

How long should I soak the green peas? Also how many plates does this make? I'm a novice and would like some more detailed tips :)

Ruchi Ruchi Adige said...

You should soak the green peas for about 7-8 hrs.
The mentioned ingredients will server around 5 plates of Masalapuri.

Tried this recipe today and loved it. This tasted exactly like the masala puri I used to get near my house in Shimoga. Thanks a lot for sharing this and making me miss home/indian food a little bit less.

Nanditha said...

Hello, I tried the Masala puri today and it came out really well. I am a bangalorean and I felt this taste very close to one of the sevaral recipes I have had there.Thanks for the recipe!

Divya Venkatesh said...

Krishnaveni avare,
I just wanted to confirm something in this recipe. Green Peas 2 cups soaked and pressure cooked. Do we have to use whole 2 cups for grinding along with Hesaru kaalu? This part was not clear. But I see you keep some cooked peas to top on pooris also. So please let me know how much peas to grind?
Thanks Krishnaveni.. Nimma shrama mathe olle kelsakke nanna abhinandanegalu..

Ruchi Ruchi Adige said...

@Divya
I have mentioned 2 cups of soaked green peas under "Ingredients for Gravy" section and 1/2 cup of soaked green peas under "Ingredients for Garnishing" section.

Tried this today. Came out wonderfully !! Almost had tear in my eye !!
Masala puri is my favourite dish and I was searching for this particular type, which is available in Mysore on roadside gaadis. I dont like any other type of Masala puri. I am a guy and had least of experiences in kitchen but I could do everything on my own thanks to your detailed recipe.
Once again, Thanks a lot !!

I followed this recipe to the last word and the masala puri turned out great! Thanks very much.

I just love your recipe for the masala puri. It is definitely one the best recipes available on the internet (I did some variations to your recipe to suit my taste)! The taste is very similar to the gaadi masala puri we get in bangalore.. which is my all time favorite snack. Looking foward to more street food recipes on your blog!

Anjana Kasargod said...

OMG! Would die looking at this. Have been looking for typical gaadi masala recipe. By reading the comments I have no doubt this is the one I have been looking for. But this masala is greenish while gaadi masala usually will be reddish (you know what I mean :)). Why is it so? Pls excuse me as I am an amateur cook.

manasa reddy said...

Hello,

I am a first tym visitor to ur site n all recipes looks too yummy....Regarding Masala puri, am gonna try this today as my hubby dear loves it.......my doubt is how long should i soak hesarukaalu? appreciate your quick reply

Krishnaveni said...

@Anjana Kasaragod,

Yes, as I mentioned already in the comments section, the Masala Puri taste varies from region to region. This looks similar to the one which I used to taste in Bangalore Gadi Masala Puri.

If you want red gravy, you can try adding Red Chillies instead of Green Chillies and also adding some turmeric powder.


@Manasa Reddy,

Usually all the grams like Green Gram Seeds, Green Peas, Channa, etc should be soaked in water for 8-10 hrs.

sathyanarayan rao said...

Hi Ruchi Ruchi Aduge, I tried masala puri and it came out very delicious and it tasted exactly like street chat... thank you very much

Shoba Shrinivasan said...

I have lived in bangalore near forum mall and passed the chat gaadi so many times and I would beg mmy hysband to allow me to have the green masala puri, but since I have a sensitive stomach hewould never allow me to..now i am craving for it and i thout i shd try it from your blog soon! Thanks

Shobha

Shwetha Gagan Kopparam said...

turned out very delicious!!

Sachin Bharadwaj said...

I usually add finely ground powder of 1 star anise(Hindi - Anasphal, Malayalam -Takkolam,
Tamil - Anashuppu), when the masala is boiling. It will give you more of a gaadi taste. Please try it once.
