The minute you hear pani puri your mouth starts to water, and its true when one says that no one can eat just one puri.

Usually most people eat Pani Puri on the streets and it is one of the most popular street foods of India and the most favourite of chats but it could end up being unhealthy as we don’t know the quality of water the people use on the streets to make the Pani for the Pani Puri.

Thats why its always a good idea to make Pani Puri in the house and enjoy it till your heart’s content.

I have a very long history with Pani Puri, as my grandfather was a big Pani Puri fan and whenever we use to plan to make Pani Puri he would buy hundreds of puries and we would have competition in the house as to who eats the most pani puri in the house would sit on the floor with the water and all the different stuffing and eat till our stomachs were full.


We would also make spdp which is also our family favorite if you want to recipe i will be posting the recipe very soon so do stay tuned meanwhile if you want more chat or street food recipes check out my Bombay Masala Toast or the Corn Chaat Recipe or How to make Jini Dosa and for the egg lovers check out the egg bhurji recipe which turns out just like on the street.
