Indian street food is full of flavors and varieties. There is no end on dishes one can try on streets. Each one different from other. From North to South there are thousands of variations of a dish. My favorite street food is non other than Pani puri or golgappa or puchka. Whatever you call them. Almost every week I have one dish of pani puri (around 6 pieces per dish at time of writing this). I also make pani puri at home. Homemade version is of course healthier.
