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.
