Indian street food can be credited to a large extent for putting India on the global map. A huge variety of spicy, tangy, flavourful snacks and small bites is available in every nook and corner of the country. There's something for everyone here. Fried tikkis and samosas for those who like their food greasy, kebabs to whet the craving of rich foods, and chaats for those who like a touch of flavours and spices in every bite. Every city has a repertoire of its own culinary offerings. Mumbai, for instance, is famous for its street foods like vada pao, pani puri and sev puri.
Sev puri is a dynamic mix of sev and an assortment of onions, tomatoes, coriander leaves, diced potatoes and spices like garlic, green chilli and tamarind; served on small, round and crispy papdis. With a topping of sour and sweet chutneys, sev puri turns out to be a heavenly chaat.
