Note: Some people suggest to cover the dough with wet cloth and keep aside for 30-40 minutes, but that is not a good option. If the dough is kept aside,  poori absorbs more oil than usual, so make it immediately.

  • In order to give a golden touch to Masala Puri recipe, the oil must be heated to optimum level. So add a small piece of dough and check the heat of the oil.
