Gol Gappe, Phuchka, Pani ka Bataasha, Gup Chup, Phulki, and Pakodi – are all names for one of India's favourite snacks, the Pani Puri. While pani puri's flavor-packed taste has a huge fan following across India, the fascinating story of its origin remains primarily unknown. Legend has it that it first appeared in the ancient Indian kingdom of Magadha. These ancient Pani Puris were called 'Phulki' and were smaller and crispier. However, another commonly believed origin of the Pani Puri is from the Mahabharata. A newly-wedded Draupadi was given a task by her mother-in-law Kunti instructing her to make food that would satisfy the hunger of all five of her sons. It is believed that this was when the new bride invented the pani puri. While this dish's origin is not clear, the one thing that is clear - is that pani puri has travelled all across India, and has made the country fall in love with it.
