Tired of eating the same old fried snacks? Get yourself a break from the regular kachoris try these flavorful, deep fried delicacy stuffed with green peas. Matar poori is a recipe that originated in the North of India. Though using wheat flour entirely is a healthier substitute to the all-purpose flour, I recommend not to substitute if you want to enjoy the authentic taste of these Matar Pooris. The lemon juice and yogurt add a tangy twist to the boiled peas that enhances the taste of these mutter puris. Serve these matar stuffed puris hot with tomato ketchup or chutney or enjoy it as a whole.
