Golgappa (Paani Poori)

This one's my all time favourite. I used to always jump at the sight of paani poori wala. And in the end waiting for the sooka poori. I once read a message that even the richest of the rich person stands in front of the pani poori wala with a "Katora" in his/her hand waiting for the next poori. Well here's the recipe.

1. Potato  Masala
    Potato (Boiled)- 3
    Chilli Powder- 1 tsp
    Cumin Powder- 1 tsp
    Salt to Taste
    Mash the boiled potatoes and mix all the other ingredients.

2. Peas Stuffing

    Soaked Green Peas- 1 Cup
    Chopped Onions- 1 Big
    MDH channa masala- 1 tsp (I got this one from a store)

   Mix all the ingredients

3. Sweet Chutney

   Tamarind- 1 Ball orange size
   Dates (Seedless and soft)- 10-12
   Fennel Seeds- 1 Tbsp
   Jaggery- 1 cup
   Chilly Powder- 1 tsp
   Cumin Powder- 1 tsp

   1.Soak the tamarind in hot water and bring it to a boil.
   2. Cool it and grind it with dates and fennel Seeds.
   3. Strain the mixture and add the jaggery and boil it.
   4. Add the chilly powder and Cumin Powder.

4. Pani for the Poori

    Everest Paani Poori Powder-3 Tsp
    Pudina (Mint Leaves)- 1 Bunch
    Green Chilies- 7-8
    Lemon Juice
    Everest Amchur Powder

    1. Make a paste of pudina, Green Chilies and lemon juice.
    2. Sieve it and add it in 1 litre Water.
    3. Add 1 tsp of Amchur Powder.

Stuff the puri's (I got it from the store) with the potato and peas mixture. Put 1 tsp of Sweet chutney and fill it with the Pani.
