Pani Puri/ Gol Gappe- ICC

10:43 Niloufer Riyaz 13 Comments

Making Pani Puri is always a dream for me coz Whenever I tried making the puris it would be a total disaster, this time it was a success. Yeah! finally In made Pani Puri from scratch, it was a total hit n the whole  plate got finished within minutes. My puris was smaller than the normal size so it didnt hold lot of filling. Added chopped Onions as my hubby likes them very much in chaat items. And after reading the comments I thought of altyering the proportions for the puris What I loved was the Sweet chutney, its my all time fav n I didnt know it was sooo easy to prepare. I didnt grind them as according to the original recipe. just straining them gave me the perfect chutney.
Sending this to ICC.
