I love the evening concept of tiffin coffee in Tamil nadu. The lunch is first meal of the day in most homes which is had as early as 10 in the morning.It is followed by a tiffin kaapi in the afternoon and then dinner in the night. This ritual was followed at my grandparents place in my native place and we children were forced to do so when we visited during the holidays. It was frustrating to have lunch in the morning when were used to breakfasts followed by lunch in the next couple of hours. But then I loved the evening tiffin kaapi where delicious snacks were made during the tea(kaapi) time.
One such item made during those days was poori masala.Not that we never ate poori masala. It was made quite frequently for our lunch or dinner. But the sudden nostalagia of eating poori masala at that hour is extremely pleasing.
Okay that is it. The potato side dish is a popular sidedish made for pooris in the south. I had actually promised to post this recipe when I had posted this another potato side dishsome ages ago.
I usually make this for our weekend brunch when we get the time in leisure to enjoy this filling satisfying meal.
