Masala puri recipe my mom's style

Masala puri recipe
My mom always prefer home-made food. During my school days, I remember asking my mom to prepare masala puri. She prepared the below recipe. Me and my bro loved this recipe. After some years, I tasted masala puri in Bangalore. The taste was quite different. Comparatively I liked my mom's version and prepare it frequently for my kids. Mixed sprouts are used to prepare the gravy. This is one of the easy way to make kids to eat sprouts. Please check below for step by step instructions and pictures for preparing my mom's version of masala puri.
