We can match up poori with any kind of gravy but nothing can give the satisfaction of having pooris with potato masala. I guess, that’s why the south Indian restaurants have never tried to change the side dish menu for poori  for years now :-D. I know of a small hotel near my town which is just famous for its poori masala – Seetharama Vilas. Their Poori Kilangu is known by the hotel’s name itself in and around the town as “Seetharama Vilas” Poori Kizhangu. My MIL has got the special “Seetharama vilas Poori Kizhangu” recipe which I am planning to post here soon. 🙂

This common poori Kilangu is so easy to prepare and need only a few basic ingredients commonly available. We can make poori kizhangu as a single pot gravy as it doesn’t involve much sauteing & grinding. We can make this as semi gravy as an accompaniment fo Pooris and for dosas, we can make it thick and place inside the dosas and relish as “Masal Dosa”. 🙂 Over to “Poori Potato Masal – Poori Kizhangu -Masal Dosa masala recipe from Home-Making-Delight with step by step photos..

  1. You can add shredded carrots or peas to make the gravy more colorful.
  2. Gram flour can be used instead of corn flour to thicken the gravy. Gram flour would be tastier than corn flour/rice flour.
  3. As potatoes are known to cause gastric problems, you can add 7 – 10 garlic pieces to suppress that.
  4. You can mash the potatoes completely or leave small pieces like I have done here.
