Panipuri (About this soundpānīpūrī ) is a type of snack that originated in the Indian subcontinent.[1]

It consists of a round, hollow puri (a deep-fried crisp crepe), filled with a mixture of flavored water (known as imli pani), tamarind chutney, chili, chaat masala, potato, onion or chickpeas.[2][3]


Panipuri's name varies depending on the region. In Haryana it is known as paani patashi; in Madhya Pradesh fulki; in Uttar Pradesh golgappa, in Bengal and Nepal phuchka; in Assam phuska/puska and panipuri; in parts of Gujarat, pakodi; in parts of Odisha, Bihar, South Jharkhand, and Chhattisgarh, gup chup.[4]

Phuchka (or fuska or puska) differs from panipuri in content and taste. It uses a mixture of boiled gram and mashed potatoes as the filling,[5] and is tangy rather than sweetish while the water is sour and spicy.
