Poori (Puri) for Chaat items - Pani Poori

This Poori is top favourite for my kids. This is one of our regular items for dinner. Taste of this is some what different from ones you get it from shops. Kids are so used to it they prefer what we make at home than outside. This is anytime any day favourite. It does have lot of work. I try to do this at least once a month.
