Poori Potato/ Potato Masala/ Poori Masala

                     Im in mood to type out this post...as my dear grandma, so close to me has passed away last Friday. She has suffered a great deal over the past few years and it would be selfish of us to wish she would be with us forever! May our prayers reach her.......and her soul rest in peace...Ameen!                                                                        ' I love you Ammi....'
