Pani Puri, Mumbai, India

Australian restaurateur, chef, and global traveler Christine Manfield confesses to being addicted to pani puri, the Mumbai street food she describes as “small puffs with spicy chickpeas spooned into the hollow and dressed with tamarind yogurt and mint—the best snack imaginable.” Also known as gol gappa, these fried semolina pastries are traditionally eaten one at a time from a street stall, in a single gulp. It’s not unusual to see a crowd of people jostling around a popular panipuriwallah on the streets of Mumbai, eager for their next fix.
