Pani Puri

Pani Puri's are Indian snacks like Donuts are to US people or Tacos are to Mexico! 
This sensational street food is very popular among all age groups. Every home have their own version of Pani Puri in terms of filling. Here's mine: 

You Need - For Sweet-tangy sauce

Dates - 20 nos (Small Pieces)

Jagerry - 1 1/2 cups (Grated)

Tamarind (adjust) 1 lemon size ball

Chilli powder - 1 tsp

Water 2 cups.

Salt - A pinch

Chat masala - 1 tsp (Optional)

In a non stick pan, add the tamarind along with the water and bring to a boil until it becomes thick paste. Once cooled down, grind tamarind mixture along with dates to a fine paste. Pour this tamarind-date paste back to non stick pan,cook for 10 mins on medium flame. Add the grated jaggery and allow it to melt with the tamarind date mixture.  Add all the spice powders and pinch of salt. Continue to cook till it becomes little thick, approx 20 mins on medium low flame. Turn off heat and allow it to cool.

This is how the sweet sauce looks like when done. It will have a sweet-tangy and a little spicy flavor. You can use this sauce in all other chaat items.
