Masala puri is my favorite..I like it very much. My all family members know my madness towards masala puri. My journey with masala puri started during my college days in Bangalore. I first tasted masala puri with my childhood friend Rekha and just fell in love with this addictive chaat. Later in my life I have many sweet memories connected to this masala puri. I remember Nirmala stores, my college days, Mysore days, Marathhalli, Thippasandra, BTM layout, JP nagar, Jayanagar 4th block, Balehonnur, K.R Pura, Ujire..like this the list goes on. But now I don't get good masala puri here in Cochin. So I make sure..to visit a chaat centre whenever I visit Bangalore. In Mysore you really get very tasty masala puris. I can never forget my happy hangouts with dear friends Pushpa and Sushma. We were mad of masala puri and baby corn manchurian.

Now coming to the recipe...not every chaat centre serves tasty masala puri in Karnataka. Or I would say the recipe and the taste varies from shop to shop. So it's important to select a good shop to taste the authentic tasty masala puri.Generally cart fellows or fast food joints will serve tasty masala puris.

This is one recipe requested by many people and many times. I would like to apologise them for the delay. I hope they are in search of origianl authentic masala puri recipe and I am dedicating this recipe to them.
