Who doesn’t love Mumbai roadside pani puri? From kids to elderly people everyone loves eating the mouthwatering puchka. Pani translates to water and puri are puffed crispy dough balls which are hallow. The puri’s are made in different shapes and sizes across India. It is extremely famous in cosmopolitan cities like Mumbai, Delhi and Kolkata. Pani Puri, have it spicy sweet or balanced – just the way you like it! it is a delight to watch the vendor skilfully punch a tiny hole in each puri thereafter adding the fillings and dipping it in the meetha chutney and teekha pani. Because of the hygiene and cleanliness issue, many people prefer making pani puri at home from scratch. The elements required for making homemade golgappa are - crispy puri, a stuffing of your choice (soaked boondi, boiled potatoes, chickpeas and moong or ragda) and pani (teekha phudina pani and sweet imli pani). There are many other versions of pani too like lehsun ka pani, jaljeera, hing jeera pani.The recipe can be modified as per your preference. If you are making a mixed sprouts stuffing for pani puri then you would require some pre-preparation of 2 days. For our homemade pani puri, we have made everything at home from the scratch. We have started with making the puri first. To make super-crisp and perfect Puri for Pani Puri, right at home. The semolina and plain flour dough is made with chilled soda, which makes the small puris to puff up while frying. The amount of soda needed to make the dough will differ, depending on the quality of the semolina and flour, so be mindful when mixing. You will really relish the crisp texture of these puris. Once the dough is kneaded, divide it into equal portions, roll into a thin chapatti. Cut into circles using a cookie cutter and deep fry till they puff up. To make golgappa, we have first made the teekha phudina pani, combine mint leaves (phudina), chopped coriander (dhania), lemon juice, green chillies, ginger (adrak), 2 whole black peppercorns (kalimirch), black salt (sanchal) and cumin seeds (jeera) powder in a mixer jar and blend it into a paste. Transfer the paste to a deep bowl and add 3 cups of chilled water, mix well and our teekha phudina pani is ready. You can keep it in the refrigerator and take it out when serving. Further we have prepared mixed sprouts mixture for pani puri. Combine parboiled mixed sprouts, boondi (soaked for 10 minutes and drained), mashed potatoes, coriander-cumin seeds (dhania-jeera) powder, chilli powder and black salt (sanchal). Mix everything well. Our mixture is ready!! You can also use ragda as the filling. To serve this mouthwatering snack pani puri you need to rack a small hole in the centre of each of the 6 puris and stuff each puri with a little mixed sprouts mixture. Top it with a little meetha chutney and dip the entire puri in the teekha phudina pani. Serve homemade pani puri immediately. Make sure, you assemble Mumbai roadside pani puri only when you are eating it or else it will get soggy and the crispiness of the puri will be lost. Here’s a tip for the teekha phudina pani - if you have time in hand you can use room temperature water and refrigerate it for 3 to 4 hours. Chilling the pani for 3 to 4 hours enhances the flavours. Once you are done don’t forget to have a free sip of teekha pani and a sukha puri to bring the delightful experience to a fitting end!

Serve the Cabbage Pakodas hot and fresh, with a cup of steaming tea . Do not add too much water while mixing the ingredients because cabbage will also slowly let out water if you have shredded it thinly. That, along with a tablespoon or two of water, is enough to bind the batter. If the batter becomes watery, the pakodas won’t be crunchy enough. This video will help you understand the right consistency of the dough and the texture of the pakodas. Khichdi Pakodas , Stuffed Methi Paneer Pakoda , Stuffed Spinach Pakoda also make a tasty accompaniment to a cup of hot tea or coffee.

A lip-smacking chaat that is loved all over India, and now globally too, the chole tikki chaat is most enjoyed at roadside stalls, but is definitely more satisfying when you make it at home for your family or for a party. Notes and tips on aloo tikki chole. 1. To make the Chole for the Chole Tikki Chaat, we first have to soak the kabuli chana. For that, wash the kabuli chana thoroughly under running water. Once washed, place them in a deep bowl. Cover them with enough water. We have taken approximately ¾ cup of chickpeas as they will double on size once they are soaked and cooked. Cover the bowl with a plate and keep aside to soak for at least 8 hours or overnight. This is a very important step as this not only helps in cooking the chickpeas faster but also helps in cooking them evenly. 2. If you want the chickpeas to go soft, you can add a pinch of baking soda while pressure cooking so that the chickpeas cook properly. But remember you do not want the chickpeas to go mushy. 3. Wait for the pressure to drop naturally before opening it. If you open it in a haste, the chickpeas will not have cooked properly. 4. Make sure that your pan is really hot so that you get a nice crust on your tikkis.

Mysore masala dosa recipe | Mumbai style roadside Mysore masala dosa | Mysore Dosa | with 65 amazing images. This is Mumbai’s own version of Mysore masala dosa. While the traditional Mysore masala dosa features chutney-smeared dosas with a simple potato masala rolled inside it, Mumbai’s street vendors offer a more exotic version, in which crispy dosas are smeared with a sweet, spicy and tangy Mysore chutney and rolled up with a unique masala of chopped and grated veggies perked up with our very own pav bhaji masala. This gives it an absolutely peppy and ‘local’ taste, as well as an interesting mouth-feel! Very sumptuous, this snack is nothing short of a complete meal, when served with hot sambhar and fresh coconut chutney . I would like to suggest 7 tips to make the perfect Mysore masala dosa. 1. In case if you have purchased the dosa batter from the market and you find it thick, then add water as required to get a pouring consistency batter. 2. Add some sooji (rava) to get crispy brown dosas. 3. Ensure that the Mysore chutney is a little thick which will help in easy spreading on the dosa. We have used around 1 cup of water for blending. 4. To make the Mumbai style roadside Mysore masala dosa, heat a non-stick tava. Grease it with ½ tsp of butter. Butter for greasing is used to season the tava and form a layer that helps in easy removal of the dosa after cooking. This initial greasing is done only once before making the dosas. 5. Sprinkle little water on the tava, it should sizzle immediately. If the water is not sprinkled, the excess fat will make the spreading of Mysore masala dosa very difficult. 6. Wipe the tava using a clean muslin cloth or folded tissue. This is to clean and make the tava ready for spreading the dosa batter. If there is any fat on the tava, the dosa will not spread evenly. 7. Spread the dosa batter in a circular motion using a ladle. Our website has a huge collection of over 129 dosa recipes, glance through these different types of Dosa recipes to learn more dosa varieties.

Temper just before serving, for the perfect “100/100”! I would like to give you some tips/suggestions to make a perfect nylon khamman dhokla. 1. Add the lemon juice and salt to the dough. As this is a sweet and slightly sour dhokla, we add lemon juice. Alternately you can add citric acid (nimbu ka phool). The lemon juice (or citric acid) and fruit salt create a fizzy reaction which results in soft, spongy khaman. 2. Mix well using a whisk to get a smooth Nylon Khamman Dhokla batter. The batter will have to mixed very well as the sugar needs to dissolve properly. If you want you can keep the batter aside for 10-15 minutes till the sugar has properly dissolved. 3. Grease 175 mm. (7") diameter thali with a little oil. This is an important step because greasing helps the nylon khamman dhokla come out of the plate without breaking or sticking. 4. Just before steaming, add the fruit salt. This will react with the lemon juice to give a fluffy batter. 5. Gently mix the fruit salt in the batter till just mixed. Do not over mix the batter, it should be airy and fluffy like this! 6. Pour the tempering over the prepared dhoklas and spread it evenly. Make sure the dhoklas are warm when you pour the tempering or else they will not soak the water in. Serve nylon khamman dhokla with green chutney.
