Potato Masal and Poori/Puri (puffed Indian flatbread) are match made in heaven. It is one of the most popular and favourite tiffin combination especially in the South. The potatoes are soft boiled and then simmered in an open pan/kadai along with the South Indian Masalas. Potatoes are delicious and are universally loved by children and adults.

Did you know- Potatoes are rich in potassium and have large amounts of Vitamin C. They are believed to improve eye and skin health. Easy to digest and filled with carbohydrates, this tiffin is most ideal for breakfast.
