Heat the tawa and add the grind ed item and pour the water with the required consistency ! once boiled adjust salt and add the rest of the boiled Green peas ! allow it to boil once boiled off the flame !

  • Instead of Tomato u can use carrot actual recipe calls for Carrot i am out stock so replace with tomato ! 
  • Actual recipe calls for Coconut which i didnt use ! but yet flavor-able one ! 
  • You should serve this masala puri hot ! so that the puri wll be soggy and tasty !
