Pani puri is the first chaat I tasted in my life along pav bhaji in Salem cafe when I was a kid. That moment when you taste chaat and instantly fall in love with it. Just wow! Me and my mom tried very much to recreate the same at home. With no internet to search for the recipe and no cook book to guide, only our imagination, we tried out best and could make something almost similar but delicious attempt it was. I want to confess you all, though I have been at Chennai for an year and visit every year, I have never tasted pani puri there. Not from any chaat houses, road side shops, nothing. Sigh. Here in Singapore, I have tried twice, once from Kailash parbhat, but sadly I didn’t like it. I have tried making too it was thousand times better than what I had in restaurants. I have tried my hands with ready made pack too, but it was the most terrible ones. Never took time to try clicking and posting here when ever I made. But this time I made just to make post. Coz its high time for me to post here though my readers keep requesting and searching google “pani puri rakskitchen”. After posting puri recipe yesterday, the response was overwhelming in the social media, I hope many of you now would be waiting for the chaat recipes with it. Here we go, India’s most loved by girl snack/ chaat the one and only Pani puri . It has a lot of variants in different parts of India, so here is my take, a delicious one, that's a promise!
You can arrange the puris in a plate ready just before serving with the fillings ready and give the pani separately so that the people who eat just dip and fill the pani in the puri and pop in their mouth or spoon the pani in the puris then and there and eat it, as per their preference. Give them a small bowl like the below ones.
