How to Make Pani Puri to Perfection!

Pani Puri is an amazing 'feel good' street food. Back in India, people would go to the pani puri wala on the street corner at any given opportunity. It usually brings groups of friends & families together and the mere mention of the words "Lets go eat some pani puri", would create an aura of excitement that could put a smile on the faces of the grumpiest people. 

It can be daunting when attempting to replicate that pani puri wala's perfected & balanced combination of flavours and ingredients, in case it doesn't turn out quite right.

Here's how to recreate those delicious delights in your own kitchen using our very own Snack Fresh recommendation:

AFF Tangy Tamarind Water & AFF Spicy Mint Water.
