PANI PURI--NO.1STREET FOOD

by - 4:05 PM

I love street foods esp Pani puri occupies the top most position after chaat and bhel puri.We have one nice Chaat wallah(Bandi as we say) near our college and after 4 the chaat flavour is in the air taking you for a quick relish.Most of the times i try to avoid it because my mom warns me not to go for it.But it often becomes irresistable for me, so i go for chaat but not for pani puri because that person is pretty fast in serving and i am pretty slow while eating.So i opt for chaat.As soon as i saw Pani puri recipe from here i became irresistable once again,so amma had to prepare it for my sake.I am here enjoying it slowly:-)
About Pani Puri-Little kahani
Panipuri is a hollow, puffed, round dough with a crunchy shell. The shell by itself is not tasty, unless it is filled with a spicy potato-based mixture and dipped in masala water. The stuffing is prepared separately, and inserted into the panipuri through a hole made in the shell. It is then dipped in the masala water and served.
