About the Recipe


The heart of this dish is the green masala, which is a delicious mix of mint, coriander, and a hint of spice. It gives the Pani Puri a burst of flavors. But that is not all—each Pani Puri is served with a different kind of pani—Apple, Cranberry, Pineapple, and Tomato—giving each bite a unique taste. It is not just a snack; it is an experience of different textures and bright flavors.



Cooking Tips

  1. Perfect Puri Dough: Let your suji dough rest for a while so that the puris have a light and crispy structure.
  2. Balanced Green Masala: You can change how spicy the green masala is to get the best flavour profiles.
  3. Chill Your Pani: To make sure your Pani Puri tastes great, use cold ingredients, like ice cubes in your masalas.
  4. Creative Pani Variations: Do not be afraid to try different flavours and fruit drinks to make your own unique Pani twist.



Pairing Guide


Your Flavoured Pani Puri will taste even better with these tasty sides:


  1. Refreshing Fruit Punch: The sweet and light notes go well with the strong flavours of the Pani Puri, making a lovely contrast.
  2. Crispy Potato Fries: Along with the Pani Puri, the crispy texture of the potato fries makes for a delicious crunch.
  3. Tangy Tamarind Chutney: Tangy tamarind chutney adds an extra burst of flavor, enhancing the overall taste.


You can mix and match to make your own unique Pani Puri experience. The important thing is to enjoy every bite and sip.
