Masala Pori is an easy snack recipe. Masala pori is also known as kara pori. It is very tasty and healthy snack . It will go well with evening tea in the winter season. In my childhood days i went to my chithi’s house in Coimbatore. My chithi prepared masala pori and gave it to me. I asked for more and more of fried garlic as it tasted good. Smell of coconut oil tempts us to eat more and more. I still remember the taste. So i remember the recipe.
