Pani puri




Pani Puri, known as the king of Indian street food, has a special place in the hearts of Indians. Pani Literally translates to water and here the Puris are fried puffed crisp dough balls which are hollow. Generally, the water or pani is sour, tangy as well as spicy. This spicy pani is balanced with the addition of sweet tamarind chutney. This sweet chutney is called as Meetha (which means sweet) Pani. The spicy water is called as Teekha (which means spicy) Pani. Both are added in the puri along with the main filling which consists of boiled potatoes, cooked chickpeas, onions, moong sprouts or a thick dry curry made from white peas. It is also served at Special occasions, celebrations, weddings, functions or parties.
