Pani Puri

Golgappa, puchka, pani puri, pani patashe – whatever you want to call it, we all know and love it!

Growing up, Pani Puri was always one of my favorite street food snacks, and it still is. It’s a classic street food that’s loved by people of all ages I remember waiting eagerly for the vendor to set up his stall in the evening, the aroma of the filling and the sweet-spicy chutney wafting through the air.

The first bite of the crispy purl, followed by the burst of the tangy filling and the refreshing pani was always a delight to my taste buds. My recipe for Pani Puri stays true to the traditional flavours of this beloved dish, with a few tweaks.

So go ahead and give my recipe a try, and I hope it transports you to your memories of Pani Puri.
