Pani Puri or Gol Gappa or phuchka vendors

It is known as Pani Puri in Western India, Phuchka in Eastern India and Gol Gappa in the North. And it's one of the most popular snacks. Small round deep fried puris stuffed with a mixture of mashed vegetables and chick peas, it is dipped in flavoured watery syrup which tastes sweet and sour and then popped whole into the mouth!

It is available in every corner of India, although it not so much in Southern India. Here is a man at a popular tourist spot with his ready-made puris, waiting for customers.

Here is a customer, a little girl who has just finished a plate of pani puris! Her mother is scrambling for some change in her purse. The yellow container has the flavoured water.
