Panipuri, or Pani puri, is a snack synonymous with the beaches of Mumbai, now has even started being visible on Bangalore streets like this on on MG Road.

It is made from small, round, puffed, hard
puris which form the 'container' or shell, and mashed potatoes and cooked chick-peas along with some finely cut onions, with salt and pepper added, and the chutneys are the stuffing.
