First Prize in the
Date Night Dinners Challenge
Pani Puri or Golgappas is my most favorite chaat from childhood. I used to have pani puri often with my family on the streets and it was something I have thoroughly enjoyed. Pani Puri - a popular street food of India, where crisp fried dough balls are stuffed with potatoes, sprouts, spicy tangy water or sweet chutney.
I saw in Bigg Boss 8 Reality Show where Upen leaves Bigg Boss house after cozy date with Karishma. A table set for their first date. the happy couple excitedly sat across the table only to find another surprise - 'pani-puri'. The couple gushed as they remembered talking in private about having pani-puri for their first date once they leave the house. So, I think to make Pani Puri...
