Who likes pani puri ?!.
let me rephrase,
Who DOESN'T like pani puri ?!
Pani Puri aka Gol Gappay is a Pakistani and Indian street food and personally, I think the amount we get when we go out to eat, on one plate (8-10) is never enough to satisfy the cravings of these delicious and tangy Gol Gappay.
So i thought, why not try making them at home. I've tried them before as well.
So lets begin !
For Pani Puri you'll need:
Plain flour : 3/4 cup
Semolina (suji) : 1 cup
Salt : a pinch
Water : to knead
For Khatta Pani :
Mint : 1 bunch
Coriander : 1/2 bunch
Cumin : 1 tsp
Salt : to taste
Black salt : 2 tsp
Ginger : 1 inch piece
Green chilies : 5-6 (adjust according to taste)
Tamarind pulp : 2/3 cup
Soak chickpeas in water overnight. Boil and keep aside.
Mix together flour, Semolina and salt.
Knead with water to form a medium soft dough. Leave for 10 minutes.
To make the individual gol gappay you can take small portion of the dough, make a snake...
..cut small sections.
Roll out the piece thinly.
you can roll out 1/4th of the dough, thin as you can get. Cute individual gol gappay with a cookie cutter.
Deep fry. Pushing them down, so that they puff up.
For Khatta Pani:
Add all the ingredients, with a little water in a blender.
Pass through a sieve. Discard the remaining pulp. Add 2 to 2 1/2 glasses of water (adjust according to you taste)
