Pani Puri on a rainy day

Pani Puri has been almost everyone’s all-time favorite. I have missed it since almost a year. Today, I finally tried preparing it myself which was my long time desire! I used ready made puris. Making them myself will be an experiment for another day…

Here’s is my version of Pani Puri, real quick and easy. It turned out clean and hygienic and somewhat tasty. It however couldn’t beat the taste of the one sold on road-side. It missed the smell, dust and perspiration!! 🙂

Step 1: Ingredients for Preparing Pani.

  • Coriander leaves – 1 cup
  • Mint leaves – 1/2 cup
  • Green chilly – 3
  • Ginger – 1 inch
  • Tamarind juice- 1/4 cup
  • Lemon juice – half lemon
  • Spices: Red Chilly powder, cumin, pepper powder, chaat masala

Make a paste with coriander, mint, chilly and ginger. You can either use a mixer or a food processor. Add tamarind juice and lemon to the mixture. Dilute it with 2-3 glasses of water. Pass the diluted mixture through a sieve/filter. Add the dry spices – red chilly powder, cumin powder , chaat masala and pepper powder. Add some salt.

Step 2: For the Filling you will need:

  • White Peas 1 cup
  • Potato – 2 (optional)
  • Onion – 1
  • Coriander leaves
  • Spices: Red chilly powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, chaat masala, pepper powder

Soak white peas for about 5 hours or overnight. Boil it in a pressure cooker for about 5 min or until mashable/soft. You can boil potatoes and mash them. The stuffing is equally tasty even if potatoes are avoided. Add chopped onions and coriander. Add all the spice powders: Red chilly powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, chaat masala and pepper powder and mix it well. Serve them with onions.

    1. Thanks a lot for your interest @alantenna. Those are called ‘Puri’s. They are made out of flour and deep fried. I skipped the prep step as they are easily available in grocery stores over here (Let me know if you are planning to prepare it. I will share a detailed recipe). The way this dish is served is by making a small hole in the Puri and adding the stuffing, followed by filling it with the spicy water (i.e. the Pani). That’s exactly what you see in the featured image 🙂
