As you know, most of the cuisines originated from the streets of either Delhi or Mumbai and have spread across the country. Having said that every metro city has something or the other to offer in the street food section or in particular chaat recipe. One such easy and simple chaat recipe is masala puri recipe which has different origins.

However variations from South India especially from Bangalore and Mysore region have taken the recipe to another level. Unlike the masala puri of other regions, here in Bangalore it is made saucier with lots of ragda gravy. Deep fried snacks like puris and fine mixes are poured over this sauce with a hint of green chutney and tamarind chutney. So every bite will explode with this flavor combination and its popularity.

Furthermore, I would like to add some more tips, suggestions and variations to the masala puri recipe.

Firstly, I have used store-bought deep-fried puri for this recipe which is totally fine. However, if you get a chance, try these homemade deep-fried puris with a crunchy and tough texture.

Secondly, the best part of ragda sauce prepared by you for this recipe can be used for this recipe and then also for ragda chaat, ragda tikki and various other chaat recipes. So plan recipes according to reusability.

Lastly, the ragda should be very hot and have a thin consistency as well. However, once relaxed, it will thicken due to ragda. So you have to adjust the consistency and serve it hot.
