As most of you would be knowing this is famous street food found in India with each region having their own speciality in taste. This can be very easy to prepare at home also. This can also be a Spicy Salad by leaving out one or two ingredients. So lets try it out.

1. Grind the above specified green leaves with salt, cumin seeds and green chilly and keep it aside.


Method:

1. Boil the peas [chick peas/green peas] with potato in water for about 20 -25 mins in a pressure cooker.
2. Soak  the tamrind in water for 20 - 30 mins till it gets soft to squeeze the tamrind water.

4. Spread the pappdi on a plate and even-out the green peas mixture on top of the pappdi then spread the onions tomato and cucumber on it Sprinkle sev on it . And serve it immediately





Note*
It can be eaten hot as well as at room temperature. But to be served immediately since the crispiness goes out of pappdi and sev
Here's your Masala Puri ready. You can make it a Spicy Salad also by not adding the pappdi and the Sev in it. As you will get a spicy/chatpati taste to your salad
