My all-time favorite Indian food is this dish. I’ve had it twice this week and had about 25-30 with each sitting which is next to nothing for the average PP fiend. Tap into the center of one of the crunchy puffy puris, stuff it with a black salt spiced yam and black chick pea mash, bob the vessel into a bowl of spicy but refreshing icy mint water and submerge it into the lake of green, dollop with tamarind-date chutney, then gently pop the whole thing into your mouth. It’s a combination of flavors and textures (water in dough?) that most would say wouldn’t work. Yet they work so well: spicy, sweet, sour, cooling, liquid, crunchy, nutty, savory, satiating. My all-time favorite. Found on the streets of India in virtually every region. And in the homes of many Indian-American cooks.
