Tomato Poori Recipe - Tamatar Ki Puri Recipe - Thakkali Poori recipe – dinner, breakfast recipes - kids recipes

I had tried this tomato puri during one of my stays in India. The spiciness from Chilli and the tanginess from Tomato makes this poori very tasty and eye catchy. My kids used to eat only Maida / All purpose flour Poori  Till last year I ended up doing only maida Poori. But lately they are ok with flavoured pooris. I have posted masala poori, spinach poori Plan to add few more vegetable poori. So stay tuned.. However most of the time they love having poori with channa / Chickpea gravy
