Call it 'golgappa', 'pani puri', or 'puchka', this savoury snack is one of the favourite street foods of India, loved by all age groups. While Indians swear by this street food, people from other nations also love it. These days, it has become a viral trend for foreign food bloggers and influencers to try out different dishes and record their reactions while savouring them. These reaction videos are always interesting to watch as we get to know what people from other countries think about our food. This time, a South Korean woman tried seven different flavours of 'pani puri', and rated them according to taste.
The video was shared on Instagram by user Meggy Kim. Dressed in a saree, Ms Kim is seen standing next to a stall of a 'pani puri' vendor. She then tries different 'pani puri' flavours like tamarind, hajma, heeng, jaljeera, mint, garlic, and lemon. While she rated 10 for the garlic and lemon flavours, she was not impressed with the tamarind and jaljeera.
She captioned the video as'' Share it with Pani puri lover.''
