How is pani puri filling made?

The basic Panipuri / Golgappa filling is made by mashing boiled and peeled potatoes with black salt, salt, cumin powder, chili powder, and amchoor powder.

However, this filling is different in different parts of the country. In some parts, tamarind pulp is added to the filling. In other parts, mint and coriander paste is added. At other places, black chickpeas are added to the potato filling.

Some street vendors known as ‘pani puri wallahs’, like to add boiled chickpeas to the potato filling. Some prefer to add onions while others don’t. So this pani puri stuffing is all about personal taste. Some like it really spicy; others like it mild. Some like to add sweet and tart tamarind chutney, while others like to only add sour curd / yogurt aka dahi.

Some important tips for making Pani Puri / Gol Gappa:

  1. I have made two fillings in this recipe — one is basic potato filling, and the other is chickpeas onion filling. You can either use both fillings, or just one filling of your choice.
  2. For chickpeas filling, I have used white chickpeas, but you can also use black chickpeas.
  3. I have added tamarind chutney, but if you want it spicier, then you can add some mint coriander chutney.
  4. I did not add any fried boondi to dhania pudina water, but you can surely add it if you like.
  5. I have added onions to chickpeas filling, but you can skip that.
  6. Make everything in advance, and let the water chill in the refrigerator. This process will better release the flavours of spices into the water. Take it out only when you want to assemble it.
  7. Always store the puris in an air-tight container.
  8. Some people prefer to add ice cubes to the water, but I would recommend using ice cold water instead of ice when you are making ‘pani’. Ice cubes can dilute the flavors, which might make your overall taste experience milder. And who wants that! 😉
