Pani puri

Bought the puris off-the-shelf ;) So this is pretty much the rest thats required and is fairly simple :)

Tamarind chutney:
1/2 cup tamarind

1 cup pitted dates
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp rock salt
1 tsp chat masala powder

1) Take tamarind in a cup and soak it in hot water filled to the brim. Wait for 2-3 minutes. Squeeze the pulp. Strain it into a container. Repeat the process thrice.
2) Take the dates in a bowl, add about 1 cup of hot water and let it stand for 30 mins. Blend it into a fine paste.
3) Mix tamarind juice, date paste and powders mentioned in the chutney ingredients. Microwave for a minute or two.

2 Tbsp of tamarind concentrate
1/2 cup mint leaves
1 cup coriander leaves
1 Tbsp chat masala powder
3-4 green chilli
1 Tbsp rock salt
1 tsp salt
6-8 cups water (adjust to taste)

1) Blend everything mentioned in the Pani ingredient list (except water) into a fine paste.
2) Add 6-8 cups of water and refrigerate.
3) While serving, add boondi to the pani (else it gets soggy)

4 medium sized potatoes - boiled and mashed
1 Tbsp green chutney (strained from the pani)
1 tsp tamarind chutney
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp salt

1) Mix all the ingredients for the stuffing,

Garnishing:1 medium sized onion - finely diced
4-5 sprigs of coriander - finely diced

Stuff the puri with potato stuffing, finely chopped onions. Garnish with coriander leaves. Finally fill with paani and enjoy! :)
