Masala puri chaat is a famous street food in Karnataka. Spicy, flavourful street food style snack prepared at home. Full video and step by step pictures recipe.

For long time, I kept postponing making masala puri post. The masala we prepare for masala puri chaat with green peas is similar to ragda. I have not tasted this in restaurant/ outside.  But have drooled enough seeing street food videos and Instagram posts.

You can serve with some sweet chutney if you want. I served as such. It was spicy and delicious.

Notes

  • Water content depends on how much water you are using to cook peas and how much it absorbs. So I cannot give exact quantity. Please refer to the video to get an idea about consistency at each stage.
  • The masala turns really flavourful if you prepare ahead and give standing time. But make sure to re heat before serving as this is supposed to be had hot.
  • Add masala powders generously as mentioned. Otherwise the gravy might turn bland.
