PANI PURI / GOLGAPPA / PANI POORI

PANI PURI,GOLGAPPA,PANI POORI,HOW TO MAKE PANIPURI, HOW TO MAKE GOLGAPPA


Pani puri, also called as golgappa and phuchka, is a popular street snack. Pani puris can be presented in one's own way with different ingredients. The filling can be of your choice, with any of these ingredients, boiled potatoes, boiled green gram dhal, sev, boiled chickpeas, onions etc. I do not use onion and garlic, and so this can be had even during vrat days. I personally prefer to have it with boiled and mashed potatoes alongwith sev or boondhi. 

NOTE WHILE FRYING PURIS:
1. Ensure oil is hot before frying. If oil is not hot, the puris will absorb oil and will not puff. 
2. Test the heat with one puri. If the oil is hot enough, the puri rises fast to the surface of the oil. 
3. While frying  keep the stove in medium flame.  If it is smoking hot, the puris will be burnt. 

I made the puris from store bought ready to fry papads which are available in departmental stores at coimbatore. However, I will post home made puris for panipuri in a separate post.

Pooris - 20
