Paan shots puchkas






Pani Puri, Puchka, Golgappe and so many other names. A mouthwatering street snack of India. It consists of round, hollow puri shell, fried crisp and filled with a mixture of flavored water tamarind chutney, chili, chaat masala, potato, onion and chickpeas. It is your choice to have panipuris in your own way. There can be different flavors and ingredients involved, but the basic shape, size remains almost same.


Sharing with you all my twist to this famous street snack. My family relished the taste of these sweet and refreshing Puchkas.
