Panipuri (About this sound pānīpūrī ) is a common street snack in several regions of the Indian subcontinent.

It consists of a round, hollow puri, fried crisp and filled with a mixture of flavored water (commonly known as imli pani), tamarind chutney, chili, chaat masala, potato, onion or chickpeas.[1]


Panipuri has various names, depending on the region. In Haryana it is called paani ke patashe; in Madhya Pradesh fulki; in Uttar Pradesh golgappa, in West Bengal, Bangladesh and Nepal, phuchka; in parts of Odisha Gupchup, in parts of Gujarat, pakodi; in parts of Bihar, South Jharkhand, and Chhattisgarh, gup chup.[2]

Puchka differs from panipuri in terms of content and taste. It uses a mixture of boiled gram and mashed potatoes as the filling,[3] and is tangy rather than sweetish while the water is sour and spicy.
