It seems actress Gauahar Khan loves Pani Puri so much that she almost forgot husband Zaid Darbar, who was sitting right next to her. Zaid posted a new video on Instagram of Gauahar savouring the tangy Indian street food as he waited for his turn. Ultimately, he had to snatch the plate from Gauahar's hands so that he too could relish the mouth-watering snack. Zaid called the actress “bhukkad” for not sharing the snack with him and asked his followers how many of them feel his “pain” after watching the video.
Well, most people would. Nobody can resist the urge to enjoy Pani Puri. However, that did not happen with Zaid. He waited as Gauahar Khan stuffed the puri with chutneys and added other ingredients and filled it with water. Then, as she had it, he kept looking on. The face Zaid made after that showed his unconditional love for the king of Indian street food.
“I can feel your pain. You have my sympathies,” replied the person behind the “gauaharkhanlove” fan account to Zaid on Instagram.

Pani Puri is known by different names in different parts of the country. While it's known as Golgappe because in some places because of the round shape of the puri that is stuffed with spices and spicy water, the other names of this snack are paani ka batasha, puchka, fulki and gupchup. Despite having so many names, its recipe is almost the same everywhere with only slight variations to add the local flavour.
The delicious snack can be had with sweet or spicy chutneys too. Made with atta or suji, a Pani Puri is usually stuffed with boiled and mashed potatoes and chickpeas.
People love Pani Puri, a complete family snack, so much that even in the middle of a crowded market, they maintain a complete decorum and wait in a queue, and not side-stepping the person standing next to them, for their turn to enjoy it. Read more about it here.
