Chaat is a term used to describe a group of street meals from India that provide a symphony of flavours and textures to the palette with their aromatic spices and zesty sauces. It’s an unlimited array of foods. Many chaat dishes that are inspired by different parts of India have been created as a result of the country’s great culinary diversity. One of them is pani puri, also known as golgappa, phuchka, pani patashi or gupchup, which is relished all over the country! But have you tried Coca-Cola pani puri yet?

According to legend, Draupadi created the golgappa when the Pandavas were exiled and her mother-in-law, Kunti, wanted to test her ability to provide for the family. She gave Draupadi enough dough for one puri and some remaining aloo ki sabzi, which she used to make several little shells into which she filled the leftover aloo sabzi and fed the Pandavas.
Regional Variations & Their Features
The name “gol gappa” is a prevalent one in North India for pani puri. The well-known variant has a tangy pani made of tamarind and a crispy puri packed with a spicy mashed potato mixture. A mixture of spices, mint, and coriander is usually used to make pani, which gives it a refreshing taste. The dish’s creamy mashed potato filling blends with the taste.

The crispy puris are stuffed with a mixture of sprouts, boiling chickpeas, and mashed potatoes. The range of flavoured waters distinguishes pani puri made in Mumbai from other varieties. Made with tamarind, coriander, and mint, pani is usually fragrant, acidic, and spicy with a tinge of sweetness. To improve the overall flavour, sweet chutney made with tamarind and dates is added.
Puchka, as pani puri is known locally in Kolkata, is a distinct treat. The main difference between puchkas and other versions is the tangy tamarind water used in them, which tastes a little sweeter and spicier. Mashed potatoes, black grammes, or spice-infused sprouts make up the filling. Tangy water and a tasty filling combine to create puchkas, a favourite street snack in Kolkata.
