Pani Puri: a hollow, crispy semolina ball stuffed with a mixture of spiced potatoes and chickpeas, dressed with sweet and spicy chutneys (sauces), then topped with a shot of tangy and tart firewater that shocks your system. It must be ‘popped’ into your mouth in 10 seconds or it will melt into a sticky mess.
