Indian Street Food
Puja Sharma

Being an Indian, we love to eat and India is a diverse country, which shelters various religions and communities hence, we see a vast range of cuisine. Our tastebuds are so developed that we can dump 5 star buffets for our Indian street food. I am going to demonstrate two of the very common Indian street foods, which are:

Gol Gappa / Pani Puri : It is a fried crispy shell of dough stuffed with boiled mashed potatoes / lentils and topped with sweet and sour chutneys. The stuffed shell is then filled with mixture of flavoured water and served.

Bhelpuri is a light and refreshing snack. It is made up of diced fresh cucumber, boiled potato, tomato, onion, puffed rice along with sweet and sour tamarind and coriander chutney, sev mixture, boiled potatoes, lemon juice and Indian spices like red chilli powder, chat masala, black salt etc. It is indeed light, fresh and healthy.
