Noodles Pani Puri


Kids’ food is based on their mood and needs and wants  - all three being mutually exclusive J But one favourite which never fails to cheer kids and adults alike is Pani Puri. Probably has its origins in Mumbai and is known by different names – Puchka, Golgappa, etc. Pani Puri is  delightful for the tangy sauces it goes with. For lunch today (yes, lunch) on Republic day, we decided to have Pani Puri for lunch, and I fondly recall the gleam in my daughter’s eyes when I brought it all to the table !
But it was Pani puri with a twist – Noodles Pani Puri !! Something that combines two kids favourites into one – pani puri + Maggi noodles, the feeling and ecstacy akin to watching George Clooney & Brad Pitt together onscreen :D

Delightfully simple to make, the ingredients are as follows:
  • Mini Pani Puris – 25  (I used the mini version as kids generally can gulp it one go)
  • Sweet Date Chutney – 1 bowl
  • Kala Namak ( black salt) – ¼ tsp
  • Amchur (Dry Mango powder) – ½ tsp
  • Dry Pudina Powder – 1/8 tsp
  • Maggi Noodles (or any other instant brand) – prepared – 1 cup
Method:
  1. Prepare the noodles as per the packet instructions. You may or may not wish to add any veggies to this. I added good old Panneer to increase the protein quotient.
  2. To the date chutney, add Kala Namak, Amchur, Dry pudina powder and mix well.
  3. Gently tap the pani puri with a small fork, spoon the prepared noodles into it and add the chutney.
  4. Serve immediately.
Tips:
a)      As it was a kids only meal, I did not add the green chutney (mint-green chilly) . For a party, you may serve this with both. Ensure you add the noodles just before serving ,else it may turn soggy.
b)      Add 1 or 2 ice cubes to chill the date Chutney – it increases the slurp quotient manifold J
