Why Ganpati With Pani Puri?

The idea came up to the owner in 2011. He wanted to build something out of Bhel materials and make them eco-friendly as well. He used a bit of hardener on the puris, but that can also be edible. This entire process took about 100 hours and the shop’s employees had put in a lot of hard work to prepare the idol.
