Seven Flavor Pani Puri (Street Food)




My Born and Brought Up City "AHMEDABAD, GUJARAT, INDIA"...The Best Place and the City which I miss wherever I go and stayed. A daytime, An evening Time, or A Night time, I always Miss this City....A Big list when I miss this city are:

You realize the city you are Brought up in will assume prime Importance, as it tends to grow on you.
  • You enjoy monsoon seasons by just opening your room window.
  • Your parents have no worries about your night outs.
  • You enjoy that chit chat with friends on cha ni kitli (Tea stall), We always have hangout at Nehrunagar's Annas Tea stall...Me, My Brother, and Before Marriege My hubby and more than 10 Friends, used to meet there and we just cant realize that its already 2 O'clock in the Night..You will never know that its already a midnight at Ahmedabad, Because you will find Roads with lot of people roaming. Then My Mom used to call us to come back home instantly with anger [Of course ;)]....hahahaha!!! Love you Mom :)
  • You see those unknown Streets, Pols with artistic designs.
  • You taste delicious food of a chef in restaurants/hotels/dhabas who've no hotel management degrees.
P.C - Google
  • People celebrate with food - and it's more than just for nutrition, health or just filling the Belly.
  • You find dalwada for the Rains, Aamras for summer, fafda-jalebi for Dussehra, Undhiyu for winter...
  • You don't even mind when people from other states give Ahmedabad a Foodiefied tag.
  • When a gourmet's paradise, a hub for gastronomy, RK or Jay Bhavani vada pav, Karnavati dabeli, Dakor gota, farali buff vada, Honest Bhaji Pav, Continental/Indian/Chinese food at Choice, Havmor ice-creams, juice and snacks at Shambhu's Coffee Bar, the exquisite Gujarati thalis at Vishala, Rajwadu and Gordhan Thal - These are a few names which have ability to appease your taste buds. (Which actually, tends to be on the the most mind-boggling variety of food and sweeter side of the Ahmedabad.
  • You've never had grain alcohol.
  • You find a vada-pav wala at every corner! We are the largest consumers of vada-pavs after Mumbai!
  • You find people loving Danny's or Shambhu's ki cold coffee more than CCD or Dunkin Donuts!
 I am dedicating This post to My City, My Ahmedabad (Amdavad) :) 

A Crunchy Puri with Potato filling and Flavored Water - More Popular as Pani Puri - is one of Amdavadi's Favorite delicacies. It's Impossible to miss the Five and Seven Flavored Pani-puri available at Vastrapur lake in the City.



"MANEKCHOWK" This place serves the people of the city a variety of delicacies including the regulars like Pani Puri, chat, sweets, snacks, etc but there are some innovative things. These items include the Ice creams, sandwiches, The Gwalia dosa, the Innovative cheese chutney sandwich and what not. This place casts a spell at night and the even health freaks let loose and indulge in some extra kilo calories amidst the open sky and the bindass environment. Manekchowk has always been a popular tourist destination and all the Amdavadis have at least once visited this high voltage food presentation.
