Pani Puri

I enjoyed eating Pani Puri during the Annual Exhibitions
( That's the only place we get all North Indian Chats in my
town ).Later on I tried Pani Puri at home adopting from
Ms. Mallika Badrinath's recipe.But Lathamma
of The yum blog's recipe is very simple and easy to make too.
For the original recipe see here.
Rava - 1 cup
maida - 1 cup
Wheat flour - 1 cup
salt to taste
Ghee - 1 tblsp
Oil for frying
For the filling
Channa - 1 cup
Potato - 2 medium
Onion - 2 medium chopped
Carrot - 1 no ( grated )
Finely chopped green chilli - 2
Coriander leaves - 2 tblsp
salt to taste
For the Pani
Dates - 2 nos
Tamarind - 3 inch piece ( 2 tsp )
Jaggery - 2 tsp
Black peppercorn - 1 tsp
Cumin - 1 tsp
Coriander seeds - 2 tsp
Green chillies - 1
Mint - 10
Black salt - 1/2 tsp

Soak Channa in water for 8 hrs.Drain the water . Wash the potatoes

and pressure cook along with channa with enough water for 10 min. Peel

the potato and cut into small pieces.Drain the channa and mix everything for filling.

Soak dates and tamarind in water and grind it along with other ingredients

given for the pani.Add 2 cups of water and strain it.Keep it aside.

To make the dough add maida , rava , wheat flour , salt and ghee.Add enough

water to form a dough.Leave it for 15 min.Knead again and make big lemon

sized balls.Roll out the balls into big rounds.Stamp out 2 inch small rounds

using round cookie cutter.

Heat oil in a kadai.In a medium flame , fry few puris at a time.Press

slightly with the back of the laddle so that the puris puff up.Fry till golden


Serve the puris with pani and channa filling.

I am sending this to Dee's Herb Mania.

I am so happy that I received few more awards from

dear Andhra flavors and Cham.
