Flavored Pani Poori with Beetroot

Beetroot Pani Poori is a fusion version of the regular Golgappas, or Puchkas where we stuff a crisp poori with condiments and enjoy with  a flavored spiced water.

Wishing all my friends a Happy New Year and I begin my first post of the year with a Fusion Street Food. I am sure by now you all are aware of my love for Street Food . Street Food is something that keeps me happy.

Few months back my friends son got married . There were many functions and of course lot of food . Different elaborate cuisines  were served , I love to go on each counter and explore  . Hubby normally dis owns me at such places ! It was on one of the functions that Beet root Pani Poori was served . The color attracted me , and since PaniPoori is my weak point , I went up and boy ! I loved it ! The water was tangy and slightly sweet , not very spicy but just right . One doesn’t get the beet flavour , yet it is there to make it healthy. What more can you ask for? My day was made ! I had a new interesting recipe !

 

So now I have one more new version of flavored waters and I am sure my BM friends will look forward to try , just the way they enjoyed Flavored Pani Poori at our BM # 100 Meet.

 

I have a couple of more versions of these puffed pooris with spicy water.
Beetroot Pani Poori is my Day 1 post under the theme Street Food Special.

    Knowing your love for pani puri, this is expected and lol on hubby disowning you…hahahah..I can so imagine.

  3. Vaishali, only you can make such innovative pani puri recipes. I was dumbstruck by your pani poori stall at out meet and my boys have been begging me to take them to visit you. This is such a lovely recipe and love the beautiful color of the pani.

  4. Wow Vaishali!!! I stopped eating pani pooris outside after eating yours at our BM meet. They were delicious and no other pani poori matched your taste.

    1. Suma, just grate the beetroot and squeeze , I have given the measurements 1/2 cup juice and 4 cups water. Also you can adjust the consistency based on how you like it.
