This is a delightful journey for your palate. It is truly a fantasy for anyone who is a pani puri addict like me. I enjoyed this unforgettable journey on the streets of delhi where we began with the hing pani, which was sharp, and then proceed to a mellowed down mild jeera pani flavoured with a sweet date and tamarind flavoured water. We moved on to a lemony mint water and finished with a dessert - like kewda flavoured water. It does take a lot of time and effort to make these flavoured waters but i assure you they will be well worth it. All these can be made upto a day in advance and refrigerated.

Pani puri, something my mother would have made 1000s of times. But when i experimented and made the different types of Pani- the hing, jeera and Limca phudina Pani it was a HIT!! Everyone loved it and was asking for more and more! Never thought that Pani puri would be so much more tastier with the different types of Pani. A must try for foodies!
