Mango pani puri to paneer makhni puchkas: 5 times humanity failed gol gappas

If it ain't broken, don't fix it! #SaveThePuchka

One of the weirdest food experiments we’ve been unfortunate enough to experience are those with Pani Puri. Why fix something that isn’t broken? Humans be strange, clearly. Here are five times everybody’s favourite street food – gol gappas – got makeovers nobody really asked for.

1. Butter Chicken Gol Gappa

This Delhi restaurant has managed to combine two really amazing dishes together and now we don’t know what to say. Is eating gol gappas with tamarind water and masala aloo filling same as eating it with butter chicken? (Hint: NO) They also have pizza gol gappa and makhani gol gappa.

2. Mint Vodka Pani Puri

What happens when your favourite drink meets your favourite evening snack? This place in Delhi serves mint vodka shots with pani puri and the result is … interesting. Instead of the spicy water, they offer vodka in shot glasses. Served with a fresh mint-vodka shot, these gol gappas are garnished with Kimchi.

3. Paneer Makhni gol gappas

Qubitos is definitely one of the most beautiful cafes in West Delhi. But the other things they boast of are Paneer Makhani and Chicken Makhani gol gappas!

This most celebrated Indian street food also comes with a caviar version. Pullman Hotel in Aerocity, known for modern Indian and European cuisines, serves caviar gol gappa with Tzatziki dip and dried ginger gastrique. No pani puri water at all.
