Pani Puri, also known as Golgappa or Puchka in various regions of India, is a beloved street food made of crispy fried whole wheat or semolina spheres filled with spiced potatoes and spicy flavoured water.

Wondering how to prepare Healthy and Tasty Pani Puri at home?
To craft the perfect Pani Puri, follow these essential steps: Prepare the Teekha Pani Gather ingredients like ginger, black peppercorns, green chilies, coriander leaves, mint leaves, salt, black salt (kala namak), roasted cumin powder, lime juice, tamarind paste, Hing (Asafoetida), dry mango powder (optional for added extra tartness), and boondi to prepare the flavourful tangy spicy water. Prepare the Meethi Chutney For the sweet meethi chutney, you’ll need jaggery (gur), dates (khajur), tamarind, red chilli powder, salt, roasted cumin powder, black salt (kala namak), and fennel powder (saunf). Prepare the Potato Stuffing Make the potato stuffing using boiled, peeled, and diced potatoes, boiled and coarsely chopped moong sprouts, and sukha masala (a blend of salt, coriander powder, black salt, and red chili powder). Prepare the Puri Combine semolina (sooji) or whole wheat flour (atta) with water and a touch of oil. Knead the mixture into a dough and let it rest for 20-30 minutes. Shape the dough into small balls, roll them into small puris, and air-fry or bake them for a healthier twist. Once you’ve completed these steps, assembling the Pani Puri is a breeze – first delicately crack a hole at the top of a hollow puri, stuff the puri with a blend of spiced potatoes, chickpeas or lentils, along with a drizzle of tangy tamarind chutney. Finally, submerge the stuffed puri into a spicy tangy and flavourful Pani, and relish the burst of taste in one delightful bite and then enjoy the heavenly explosion of flavours as you savour each and every bite.
