Pani Poori

Posted by EsyRecipes Sunday, November 15, 2009

Discription:One of India's favorite snack. The word "Pani" means water and "Poori" is puffed Indian bread. It is surely an experience eating Pani Poori. This popular Indian snack is also called  Gol Gappa. Usually enjoyed at many of the street vendors in India it is becoming increasingly popular in many restaurants.
The Poori is a 1 1/2 inch puffed Poori which is fried and filled with potato and/or green lentils and tamarind chutney and the Pani Poori water.As soon as it is made you have to put the whole Pani Poori into your mouth expertly without squirting the liquid all over your clothes. The Pooris are always made bite-sized.
A Suggestion - If you have a chance to eat it at a restaurant first please do so as you will be able to understand what your home made version should look and taste like. Many Indian grocery stores sell the Pooris so if you have one nearby it will save you a lot of effort. Making the snack thereafter is a breeze. 
So try this wonderful recipe for yourself at home. Enjoy.
