Puri Recipe for Panipuri

Panipuri or Golgappa is common and everyone’s favorite street snacks in India. Almost every part of India you will find this snack with different names, like; Golgappa, Ghupchup, Panipuri, and more. Panipuri is a Hindi name, Pani means ‘water’ and puri is a round hollow puffed crisped dough ball, which is made with semolina and flour.

Today, I am going to share the Puri recipe for panipuri, that you can make it ahead of time and store it for later or have it on the same day. I choose this recipe for people, who live in another country and miss so much this snacks on the street. Pani puri used to be my favorite snacks. I remember, when I was returning from tuition classes in the morning I used to have this snack every day. This sounds so crazy that it used to be my unhealthy breakfast. However, after moving to the USA I missed this street food so much, though I found this snacks (which is already made and packed) in Indian grocery store, the taste was slightly different than what I used to have.

A couple of days ago, I continuously getting the panipuri pictures on my WhatsApp family group. And you know the feeling when you see the food which you like the most, but you can not get it. The same day I watched a lot of videos on youtube how to make panipuri at home. I tried to make the puri at home. My first try was not so bad, only some puri was flat and some burnt, but I was so happy that I made it. I would say, making the puri at home feels little overwhelmed, but is not a hard task. It takes little patience and effort. If you have somebody to help then it is very easy and fun task to do.

If you don’t have time to make puri at home you can just buy them at any Indian grocery store. There are two options available in the market, already fried puri and puri dough which is already cut in size, just you need to fry them. Normally, I like to make it at home and try to make a big batch so I can save it for later. The good thing about this Puri is that you can store it for a month or so at room temperature.

I have divided the panipuri recipe into two parts. This recipe covers all the steps, how you can make puri for panipuri at home. With the Puri, you can make lots of different type of Indian street snacks. I will leave the link how to make panipuri by using this puri.
