Panipuri also known as Gol Gappa (North India), Phuchka (Bengali) ,also called bataashaa or Gup chup is a popular street snack in the Indian subcontinent. While many regions in India have their own variations of Gol-gappa, the most famous ones are from Uttar Pradesh. There may be a filling of boiled potatoes in Gol-gappas. Biharis operate most of the chaat stalls throughout the country[5]. In Bengal, Bihar, Jharkhand it is called phoochka (puchka).In Orissa and Southern part of Jharkhand it is known as GupChup. Many people enjoy this particular recipe. These do not contain any sweet or mint. In Maharashtra, the recipe is usually spicier, and also contains 'boondi' or sprouts in addition to other ingredients. In Gujarat it is called Pani Puri. It is made with the help of different types of water. Such as imli ka pani (tamarind in water), nimbu ka pani (lemon juice in water), pudine ka pani (mint in water), khajur ka pani (dates mixed in water), etc. You can also enjoy it with curd and different types of massalas like onion, sev, nuts, etc. Pani Puri is also a delicacy in Nepal. source:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panipuri
