Poori Kizhangu

Poori_Kizhangu_1 Potato is available throughout the year and children like it more. Potato is used in combination with any vegetable, in Raitha and also as solo (Boiled Potato Fry, Potato Round Fry).

Here I have prepared Poori Kizhangu in authentic way that is exclusively served with Poori.

Serves: 4

Cooking time: 30 minutes approximately


  • Potatoes – 4 no
  • Green chilli – 6 noPoori_Kizhangu_2
