Crisp semolina puris filled with sprouts and chilled mint flavoured water make a great snack for a hot summer afternoon. They are known as "golgappas" in northern India and as "poochkas" in West Bengal. When my favourite "panipuriwallah" is serving me these delightful little puris one after the other, I just go on eating till I can eat no more! Sprouts can be replaced by hot ragda to complement the chilled mint water.


Making the puris takes some time to master and although they can be bought from a local store, the extra effort put in to make them at home is well worth the trouble. Do remember to store the puris in an air-tight container. You can always refresh them by baking them in a slow oven for 4 to 5 minutes.


Finding excuses to invite people over, organize a chaat party and serve in disposable plates made from dry 'Sal' leaves to create an ambience. End on a sweet note with desserts like Baked Boondi Gulab Jamun Kesar Malai Kulfi and Malpuas .

  1. Soak the tamarind in ¾ cup of warm water for approximately half an hour. Strain out all the pulp through a sieve.
  2. Combine this pulp with the remaining ingredients except the black salt in a blender and grind to a fine paste using a little water (approximately ¼ cup).
  3. Transfer the paste into a large bowl, add 3 cups of water, black salt and salt and mix well.

I tried to make the pani puri according the your instructions but I found that puries are not getting crispy. I am using ground oil to fry at low temperature. Please guide me to correct this. Awaiting for your reply. Manisha Mob no. 8141944365 Surat, Gujarat

   Hi Manisha, the oil is not a problem, while frying the puris, keep the flame on medium and not on low, and keep turning in between to get cooked from both the sides.
