Call it panipuri, gol gappa, gup chup or phuchka, we Indians have a unique love affair with this peculiar street food. Fried and puffy bite-sized balls of sooji or atta, cracked open and stuffed with fillings of potato, chickpea, green chillies and a pool of chutneys, oozing with spicy coriander and mint water. In terms of flavours, it is perhaps one of the most balanced street foods of all times. It is crunchy, spicy, tangy and sweet at the same time. Nowadays the traditional fillings have also gotten a modern makeover, and if you get a chance, you must try some of these innovative fillings too. One of the most sensational kinds is a cheese panipuri. Panipuri filled with oodles of cheese, veggies and herbs is a hit with youth among Mumbai, and for obvious reasons. It has fused together some of our most loved foods and has become an instant rage.
In this recipe video, Mumbai-based food Blogger Alpa Modi tells you exactly how you can make this delectable fusion treat in the comfort of your home. The snack is ideal for a weekend get-together.

Make sure the stuffing is not watery and is a little on a sticky side. Top it up with some more cheese and dig in!
