Street Food

The most famous street food doesn’t need any introduction. The word itself defines the fame and love among people. It is no wonder that it’s a popular street snack along the length and breadth of India and known as golgappa, puchka, pakodi , panipuri etc. we all are very much aware of its flavour and taste that’s why whenever we think of it, a mouth-watering statement comes on our mind. We feel that nothing can be more delicious and yummy than this.

Yummy Recipes Corner

But today I tried to give a new look to this very much favourite dish of all. This one is for all the chicken lovers and I am sure they going to love it as I gave a new essence to it. When a triangle of crunchiness, spiciness and tangy flavour comes together in one dish then nothing can be more perfect than this. Literally we use to get all the three major tastes that is – khatta, teekha and meetha in one panipuri which creates a complete sort of satisfaction and temptness to the mouth.

With so many bursts of tastes and flavour in your mouth when you have panipuri you just cannot have one. Obviously, the perfect way to eat is when we put all together and eat fully at once after which we can’t stop eating more

So enjoy in one bite….

 Yummy Recipes Corner-Junk Food Is Eating Us

Junk food that we prefer is actually eating us, so keeping in mind about healthy and tasty food it’s difficult to take both the things together and is one of the biggest challenges while cooking. Therefore, according to me, a good cook is one who provides you delicious and healthy dishes. Putting all these things together and providing everyone so-many mouth-licking recipes by utilising my knowledge  will help others in taking care of their selves in a tastier way and for me to get a medium to tell everybody that housewives or women who are cooking in their homes just need a chance to change the world as cooking is not an easy task.


 Definitely , the answer to this question is  if you are eating just for your survival then you can never be fit  and if you are living to eat then you’ll be perfectly fit as well as it shows your passion for food. This is my concept of writing blogs on cooking as it not only about preparing food and eating also things like health , your passion etc is related to this, as women who spend their whole day in kitchen can make this as their weapon inspite of feeling low that they are not doing job.



Ingredients to make puri

1/2 cup  semolina(rava)

1/2 tbsp plain flour(Maida)

salt to taste
1/4 cup chilled  Soda

Oil for deep-frying 


1.    Combine the semolina, plain flour and salt and knead very well using chilled soda to make a semi-stiff dough. Cover it with a damp muslin cloth and keep aside for 10 minutes.
Knead and divide the dough into 4 equal portions

2.    Roll a portion of the dough into 175 mm. (7”) diameter circle. 3.    Cut into 7 equal circles using a cookie cutter of approx. 37 mm. (1½“) to 50 mm. (2”) size.

4.    Repeat step 3 and 4 to make more circles. Keep doing till the dough is over and you get 40 circles in total.

5.    Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan, deep- fry few circles at a time, and press it slightly using a perforated spoon till it puffs up and are golden brown in colour from both the sides.

6.     Remove and drain on an absorbent paper and store in an air-tight container. Use as required.

Handy tip:

1. Always ensure that the oil is hot before frying otherwise the puris will soak in excess oil and will not puff. Put a small testing puri. If it comes up fast then the oil is rightly hot. 
2. Also the oil should not be smoking hot or the puris will get burnt and dark.

·      Heat oil in a deep bottom pan or kadai and put 3 - 4 puris in the kadai and fry them with the help of a slotted spoon.

·      While frying, press them in the center allow them to puff up. We want a pocket in each and every puri.

·      Now flip them over and let them cook. Take them out on a kitchen towel when they are light brown and crisp. Don't let them get dark in color.

·      Let them cool. Later store in an airtight container.
