Poori or Puri Kizhangu / Poori or Puri Potato masala curry

Today I made Poori Kizhangu (masala potato) for lunch along with rasam, rice and potato (non masala curry).  My hubby's all time favourite.  I generally never used to do Poori kizhangau so frequently.  Since its holiday time and that too for this cold weather my hubby requested to do this and so here is the receipe. 

My son never taste or attempt to taste poori and masala potato.  So I have to always cook his favourite jeera milagu rasam along with his favourite Potato curry (no mirchi at all :-))  It is always very tough to plan  long distance travel with him due to his food limitations.  I always have to look for some place which have kitchen, microwave and refrigerator if we plan for long distance travel.
