Street food is very popular in India. Everywhere you go there is a new tasty treat to try. One of the most popular is a snack called Panipuri. It consists of a round fried crisp which is hollowed out and filled with a mixture of water, potato, chickpeas, and various spices. Panipuri is small enough so that you can fit the entire thing in your mouth. It’s very popular for people to try to eat as many Panipuri as fast as they can.

The one thing to be careful of is that it is made using sanitary ingredients. I made the mistake of having Panipuri at a food stall near the beach. I suffered for the next week because of it. However, after that my stomach could handle anything.

    I don’t quite understand what you mean by “made using sanitary ingredients”? As in, it was made out of sanitizing ingredients – something your not supposed to eat?

    I guess I mean it’s prepared in a sanitary way. As in, the water is clean and not from the river, gloves are worn by the food vendor, the ingredients have been properly washed before cooking, etc.
