Pani poori

Ghe gol gappa or pani poori is everybody's favorite. I havent had this for a while now.  Those thela walas(roadside vendors) make the best gol gappas. I sure remember one guptaji in our township who used to make them really scrumptious. His thela's chaat too used to be delectable. I crave for it even now. i havent had pani pooris for quite a while now, so there it started - a hunt for the perfect recipe on the net. I tried a few of them but the one which I am gonna share now is the best of all for an all-time hit.

This is what u'll need....

Sooji 1 cup
Maida 1 tspn
Salt to taste

For pani ->
Cumin powder 1/4 tspn
Coriander powder 1/4 tspn
Chilli poowder 1/4 spn
Salt to taste
Tamarind paste - just a dash
Coriander leaves 3 tbspn
Finely chopped onions 3 tbspn

For stuffing->
Potato 1 small
Chole 2-3 tbspn

Here is the stir....
  • Put sooji and salt in a bowl. Add very very little warm water and mix it all together so that the mixture just turns grainy. Remember it should be sticky at all
  • Add a little maida on top to take off even the little moisture that remains
  • Knead it into a dough that is not too tough nor too soft 
  • Make tiny pooris out of the dough and deep fry them in medium high heat oil till they come out crispy. Drain them on a paper towel and keep them aside
  • Mix all the ingredients for making the masala pani and adjust spice to taste
  • Boil the potato and mash it with a little salt
  • When serving, make a little hole in the poori. Stuff it with little potato, chole and pour some masala pani into it. Pop it into your mouth in one shot.  I am sure its gonna be yummy
