ABOUT Palak Masala Poori RECIPE

I wanted to prepare a snack with 2 ingredients for a challenge. The ingredients were Spinach and Bay Leaves. As we have a lot of festivals coming our way and lots of guests would be expected, the idea of a deep fried poori instantly appealed to me and I planned out this recipe. As the challenge included Bay Leaves, I thought of preparing a Masala to be mixed into the dough for sensational tasting pooris.
