An all time favorite in the chaat category is Pani Puri (aka Gol Guppas or Puchkaas). You can’t have Puri without the Pani. How to describe a Pani of the Pani Puri fame? It is a mix that has depths of flavor. So when you put a Pani Puri in your mouth, it’s a burst of different levels of unbelieveable flavor. So the best way to optimize the space in your stomach is to start with Pani-Puri and then layer it with another chaat item and then alternate with pani-puri and ofcourse you have to end it off with Pani Puri!
A lot of the ingredients are to taste and you can make it spicer or milder. After a round of Pani with the Puris, make sure you have some pani by itself – absolute bliss!
