Puri Potato Masal

I was gearing up for my mashed potato recipe at Crazy Cooking Challenge with a dish I loved along the streets of Nottingham. It was mashed jacket potato with chilli and beans. But then suddenly a thought struck me why not send the indian version of mashed potato. Yeah puri masal or sagu is the all famous and all time favorite breakfast across South India and is mashed potatoes with the indian touch. I knew the recipe still looked if there were any with variations. I got this recipe from Sashi's Tasty Bites. Just the minor tweak from the recipe we prepare, inclusion of gram flour. What else but fluffy hot puris and masal for a lovely winter morning....

Boiled Potato - 3
Onion - 2
Grated Ginger - 1tsp
Green Chilli - 2
Mustard Seeds - 1 tsp
Urad Dal - 1 tsp
Gram Dal - 1 tsp
Curry Leaves - a little
Asafoetida - a pinch
Turmeric Powder - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil for cooking

Heat oil, add mustard seeds and once it splutters add asafoetida, urad dal, chana dal, curry leaves, slit green chilli, ginger, chopped onion and saute till golden.
Add salt, turmeric powder, mashed potatoes and mix well. Add very little water till its mushy.
Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with fluffy puris.
