On July 12, 2023, Google commemorates the beloved South Asian street food, pani puri, with a vibrant Google Doodle. Indians are well-acquainted with this iconic snack, known by various regional names such as phuchka, golgappa, gup chup, and tikki. Pani puri’s enduring popularity stems from its harmonious balance of spiciness and sweetness, making it a favorite among many.
Pani puri consists of a crispy shell filled with a delightful combination of mashed potatoes, chickpeas, chilies, spices, salt, and lemon, served with flavored waters. The Google Doodle celebration pays homage to this culinary delight due to a significant milestone achieved on July 12, 2015. A restaurant in Indore, Madhya Pradesh, secured a World Record by offering an impressive array of approximately 51 flavors of pani puri.
