What is Pani puri? How to make pani puri? If you have still not known pani puri then tasting this dish might give you a hint to it.This is a mild substitute to the real pani puri. It can be helpful in Germany as Indian students.The ingredients are easily found and therefore can be made easily so that you dont miss home. 🙂

Pani puri is a delicious snack in India. You can get it almost every 5 kms and you just get addicted to its tangy, hot and sour taste. Since I have come to Germany I have not been able to taste anything close to it. So I decided to make it myself but just with a small twist, to make use of the things available here.Hence, the Pani puff puri!!!!


  • Blätterteig- 1 roll
  • Tamarind paste- 1/2 cup
  • Sugar- 1 cup
  • Ground cumin seeds- 1 tsp
  • Salt- 1 tsp
  • Chilli powder- 1 tsp
  • Hot water- 1cup


Roll out the blätterteig into the shape you want. Bake them or heat them on a pan. For the tamarind water, use the tamarind paste/chutney available at any asian grocery store, add hot water to it and let the tamarind dissolve. After it forms a semisolid paste/chutney strain out the pulp to remove the dirt from the paste and add the sugar, ground cumin seeds, salt, chilli powder and stir.


Add mint leaf paste to give it the real pani puri taste. Since its not easily available here I chose to make the tamarind juice alone. Also dates (ground to paste with water) can be used to reduce the amount of sugar and give the paste/chutney a thicker consistency.
