ShareMasala Puri is one of the most popular fast food dish across India.I had always believed that the distinct taste of any street food cannot be achieved at home.This recipe proved me wrong.It tasted much better than the ones on the cart.I guess it was due to the fresh ingredients.Even the sev for the garnish was freshly made.Will post the recipe soon.

Ingredients for the masala:
  • Green peas/white peas(dry or fresh)cooked with salt-2cups
  • Moong(green gram) cooked with salt-1/4cup
  • Mustard seeds-1/2tsp
  • Cumin seeds(jeera)-1/2tsp
  • Ginger-garlic paste-1tsp
  • Chopped onions-1/2cup
  • Peppercorns-6
  • Green chillies-4 or to taste
  • Bayleaf-1
  • Cinnamon stick-1"
  • Cloves-2
  • Tamarind-big grape size
  • Mint leaves-1 string
  • Corriander leaves-1/2cup
  • Rice flour-1tbsp
  • Corriander powder-1tsp
  • Oil
  • Salt-to taste
Heat a tbsp oil in skillet.Add mustard,jeera and saute.Add the ginger garlic paste and saute till the raw flavour goes away.Add chopped onions and saute till transparent.Cool.
Grind the moong,peas,onion mixture,corriander leaves,cinnamon,bayleaf,cloves,peppercorn,green chillies,tamarind and mint leaves to a paste.
Pour this into a big pot.Add enough water to get a thin gravy.
Add salt,dhania powder,rice flour and bring to a boil.Let it boil fo 5mins on low flame.
Reserve an additional cup of boiled peas to add while serving.

To serve:
Crush the Paapdis and place it on the serving plate.
Layer 2tbsp of peas over it.
Sprinkle salt,chilli powder and Khatti-meethi chutney.
Now pour in 1cup of the masala.
Garnish with chopped onions,tomatoes and grated carrot and chopped corriander leaves.
Sprinkle a generous amount of sev.
Serve immediately as the papdi gets soggy fast.
