Poori with aaloo palya is one of my favorite breakfast item. In South Indian restaurants it is one of the very common thing served as breakfast. Generally many people use to have this when they happen to go to restaurants for breakfast because it is generally considered as difficult dish to prepare at home. But now with this easy steps recipe you can make this very delicious food item for breakfast at home itself. Just in case if you do not know, aaloo in hindi/urdu means potato and palya (argued to be kannada word) means a mash of potato to which special tempering treatment is given.

If you do not want to have poori with palya, if you are a non-vegetarian you can alternatively  you can have it with paaya (I will write paaya recipe some time soon) or if you are a vegetarian you can try with chana masala (I will try to write chana masala recipe in my future posts) as well.
