Pani puri is a common street snack in India. It is also called golgappa. It consists of round, hollow puri fried crisp and filled with a mixture of flavored water, chickpeas, potato, onion and tamarind chutney. I like panipuri a lot and my kids love it too, but I am reluctant to feed them outside with concern to the water they use, so I have done this at home to avoid stomach upsets. I made it very simple and less spicy for kids. Here are the step by step instructions.
