Amma's Poori with Potato Masala - Breakfast Staple

Poori masala remids me of so many memories from my childhood. Amma makes this only during weekends..And we as a litte kids will be waiting for weekends the whole week. Amma’s method of making poori is entirely different from mine. It was not the traditional one but taste so good with poori. She makes the masala little runnier, so that everyone gets a little of the gravy..

One more weird thing which she adds in all the korma is MILK..Yes, Amma adds milk in all the dishes. This gravy can be done in very less time than anyother curry. This is amma’s way of cooking stuffs. I am very glad to share my mom’s signature recipe with you all..Thanks Amma for giving the recipe to me..I LOVE YOU..
