Aloo Masala for Poori ~ Combo Breakfast Dishes

Aloo Masala for Poori is one of the simplest yet tasty dishes you can make for your weekend brunch and enjoy a hearty meal.

I am very fond of this Combo Dishes theme and always keep looking out for dishes that are served together. We always plan for an elaborate breakfast which also ends up being a brunch as its almost 10.30 – 11 on a Sunday for the breakfast to get completed.

So I mostly plan for a couple of dishes when its poori or appam. As I have already said, our Sunday’s are either Poori or Appam. And the side dishes are also fixed as boys refuse to eat anything else. I get to try one new dishes for the elders.

Finally, for one of the Sundays, I made this Aloo Masala, Coconut Chutney for Poori along with Kesari Bath. It was quite a heavy brunch!

We are starting an edition BM#89, where for the first week I will be sharing some combo dishes featuring either breakfast or lunch.

  1. Aloo masala looks delish…this is a good Sunday brunch.. unfortunately at my place brunch never works..I also loved the kesari bhat…

  2. Such a classic combo of poori and aloo masala! Chutney and dessert make it a complete meal. It is funny how we all let children dictate what is cooked in the house. 🙂

  3. Aloo Poori is a classic combo and every house has a different bhaji , I like this bhaji , it is very different from what I make . The use of onions and besan in Aloo masala is so unique , must try this . The Sunday brunch looks very inviting .

  4. Such a classic combination. Wish i kick start my weekend with this plate of poori and aloo masala, its been a year i had pooris as am keeping myself away from deepfrying. Your plate is too tempting Valli, my mouth is literally watering here.

  5. What a coincidenceValli, I just had aloo poori in my dinner, though we usually make it in breakfast, but my kids insisted to have it today in dinner.
    your version of aloo is quite different. Next time I’m going to try it for sure. Must be a nice variation.
