Hi everyone ! Today’s recipe is ‘Pani Puri’. It is a very famous Indian street food, which needs no introduction. There are various names for this street food in India itself, some very common ones are – Pani puri, gol gappa, pani patashe, puchkas and gup chup. I love it and can have n number of puri, but I prefer homemade pani and therefore, my mom prepares pani at home. This again is my mother’s recipe. It is quick and easy one to prepare at home. You can store and refrigerate pani and have it on next day also. Ready-made puri is easily available in market these days.
Pani (sweet and tangy water) can be adjusted in flavour according to individual choice. Filling used for pani puri can be made in different ways. You can have boiled potatoes, sprouted boiled moong, boiled black chanas, boondi or ragda as your stuffing.
