furthermore, some easy and clever tips for a perfect and tasty poori masala recipe. firstly, in this post, i have boiled and cooked the potatoes separately in a cooker to haste the entire cooking process. i would recommend the same to you as well, and as a tip, you can cook the potatoes well ahead in advance too. secondly, once the curry is cooked, it has to be served immediately or it may thicken and may lose its consistency. hence i would heavily recommend to reheat and add some water while heating or just before serving. lastly, adding besan or chickpea flour is completely optional and hence can be ignored safely.
