Golgappe Ka Paani

Golgappe Ka Paani

It is hot in Jaipur. It is hot everywhere in India right now but Rajasthan being a desert is unbearably hot. Living on the top floor of the house makes matters worse. Sometimes it is so hot in the afternoon and evenings that you do not feel like eating at all let alone cooking.

On days like these having chaat at home is the best option as there is not much slaving over stove required. All the chutney whether it is green mint chutney or saunth gives cool effect to the body. And then there is lots of curd involved. Golgappe is the most favourite chaat item in our house. You can get golgappe from the local golgappe waala or the grocery stores. Just make chutneys,paani and potato mixture at home. My mother buys a packet of uncooked golgappe which she fries at home.


I took the photos in the hot month of May but have not been able to post it on blog. But there is still a lot of summer left. So if you do not make this at home I would really advice you to do so.

It is much hygienic and you can control spices according to your taste ( And stomach;-) ) Just indulge with a little caution.:-)

How to make Golgappe ka paani

 It is best to prepare all the things in advance and let them cool in fridge for 2-3 hours especially golgappe ka paani. It tastes best when chilled.

Wash the potatoes and put them to boil. Let them cool after boiling. Remove the skin and cut them in small pieces. Add the spices and put them in fridge to cool.

potato mixture


Wash and peel the raw mangoes. Cut slices of mangoes and boil in water till they are soft. Or you can cook them in pressure cooker for 5 minutes (1 whistle on high and 2 on slow flame). Strain the pulp when it is cold enough to handle. Add sugar, salt, red chilli powder, black salt, bhuna jeera and pudina powder to the water.
My family likes it a little sweet and spicy that is why I have added sugar. You can skip it also.

Leave it in fridge for some time. It will taste different after getting cold. Then you can taste and adjust the spices as per your taste. Add boondi before serving. You can add ice to the water.
