Today I made Soft Poori with Tasty Black Chickpeas which can use as Breakfast. Fried Poori with Masala flavour black Chickpeas curry is an excellent combination. This is my favourite combination for breakfast so I am making this so many times in my house. This curry is little bit spicy dish with the flavour of Fennel Seeds Powder and Garam Masala Powder. Let us start a day with this super combination.
