Pani-puri golgappa recipe
Golgappa Recipe -Home Style cooking
And here is the MOST MOST favorite recipe i am going to share with you guys all.If you follow me on facebook OR instagram you might know that i have posted homemade panipuri photo.
Pani puri-you already know that pani puri has many names in different region like poochkas, golgappe, pakodi , pani ke patashe, gupshup, patashe etc.
Pani-puri is my most favorite chaat from childhood. I used to go with my friends on the street of porbandar and i truly enjoyed it.

Pani translates to water and here the Puris are fried puffed crisp dough balls. Generally, the water or pani is sour, tangy as well as spicy. This spicy pani is balanced with the addition of a 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, chickpeas, tempered moong ,boondi or a thick dry curry made from white peas which is called as ragda.
The puri or pooris are made from flour or sooji/cream of wheat or both. They are thin, crisp, fully puffed and thus occupy the filling and the chutneys. These can be brought ready from the stores or can be made at home too.
I usually buy purees from store because i wated to avoid time it takes to make purees( i can't resist). sometimes I also deep freeze ginger-chilli-mint paste for 8-10 days. so, whenever i wanted to make panipuri ,i just take a portion of paste and add water,salt and masala and my teekha pani will ready in just 5 min or less.

Panipuri stuffing also have some variations like i am using potato-chickpea stuffing here while some of using only potato stuffing, sprouts stuffing, ragda stuffing etc.
I am following my mommie's homestyle recipe to make teekha pani.This teekha pani has Spicy,Tangy and sweet don't need to have meetha pani at all but however I am using tamarind chutney by adding some water as meetha pani.
To make Spicy pani,you need to make green Chutney or you can make green paste individually. jal-jeera can be used as teekha pani as well.
I don't know about the history of panipuri but whoever invented this recipe has given the world's best recipe to us.
For serving, first crack puri, stuff puri with potato filling, add few tablespoon of sweet pani as per your taste and at last, add teekha pani.You have to serve panipuri immediately after stuffing otherwise your puri become soggy.
