Pani puri is also called as Gol Gappa, Pani Ke Bataashe or Gup Chup. Its a very popular snack comprising of a hollow puri, fried crisp and filled with various mixtures and finally dipped in flavored water.Pani puri takes the first place in the list of chaats and I can easily call it the King of Chaats :)I am going to give ma quick version of fruity pani puri here........:)
Mix semolina, plain flour, soda water and salt. Knead well to make a soft dough.Cover it with clean wet cloth for about 10 minutes.Divide the dough into forty marble-sized balls and roll each ball into a pooris.Heat oil in a wok and deep fry these pooris, slightly pressing them with a spoon, until they puff up and are golden brown.
Heat oil in a wok and saute the onion for a few minutes till transluscent.Add the ginger-garlic paste and saute for a minute more.Add salt, turmeric, chilli paste, cumin powder, coriander powder,sugar and saute for a few seconds till spices are aromatic.Then add the cooked peas, 2 cups water, mint and coriander paste.
