Things to note

Garlics 

Adding 4-5 chopped garlics will enhance the flavor also helps prevent gas, bloating caused by the potatoes. So do not skip it. Finely chop the garlics and saute until raw smell leaves.

Ghee

At the end, before you switch off the flame, add 1-2 tbsp of ghee. Usually they add dalda, for healthy version I add 1-2 tbsp of ghee. Ghee enhances the tastes and gives an amazing flavor to the poori masala.
