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.
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, and is tangy rather than sweetish while the water is sour and spicy.
