Masala puri, or Masalpuri, is an Indian snack which is especially popular in the southern state of Karnataka. A form of chaat, the dish originated in the Indian state of Karnataka and has now become famous in the entire Indian subcontinent.[1] Typically spicy, the dish can also be made sweet based on the requirement.[2]


Crushed puris are soaked in hot masala gravy made up of puffed rice, green peas, chili powder, garam masala, chaat masala, coriander powder, etc. Toppings of small slices of onion and tomato, coriander leaves and sev are then added, before the dish is served.[3] Sometimes carrot shavings are added, but they are not required.
