  • In most recipes, potato masala dont have tomato, but my mom always add tomato in this, we liked the taste, so i always prepare this way. If you dont like, skip it.
  • You can replace green chili with chili powder too.
  • Dont add more gram flour than mentioned, it wont taste good. 
  • You can use this masala for masala dosa too.
