Street food in India

In India, everywhere you are in town you can find many sellers of street food. I will show you some delicious Indian specialities.


pani puriPani puri and Dahi puri

Pani puri consists of a round, hollow puri, fried crisp and filled with a mixture of flavored water (pani), tamarind chutney, chili, chaat masala, potato, onion and chickpeas.
Dahi puri ingredients are Sev, puri, onion, chili powder, moong dal, yogurt (Dahi) and coriander leaves.

You should put the panipuri in only one time in your mouth!

Man with Samosas


This is an extremely large samosa filled with a curried potato mixture. Samosas are probably the most popular Indian snack food. Deep friend dough filled with a spiced potato mixture, they come in many shapes, and with infinite fillings. This one was so crunchy and delicious outside and so warm and spicy inside! Indian people use to eat samosas in a bread with chili sauce. And cheap: only ₹12 (less than 0,20 €)


masala dosaMasala Dosa

This is favorite Indian street food in Mumbai. It is a very thin, crepe-like exterior, cruchy outside and soft inside, made of rice and black lentils then filled with a concoction of your desire. Most are filled with potatoes and green chili. They are served with dipping chutneys and raita.



Momos are dumplings filled with meat or shrimps (on the beach) and/or veggies and steamed. The Indian momos get their influence from the Tibetans in the Himalayas. They were delicate and downright delicious. It is served with a red chili and ketchup sauce.



Jalebi is a deep-fried sweet dough that is served hot and most times dipped in a sugary rose water before consumption. There is too much oil for me and the taste is little strange. I don’t really like it but it is good also.



Falooda or Faluda, is a cold dessert popular in the Indian subcontinent. Traditionally it is made from mixing rose syrup, vermicelli, sweet basil seeds, and pieces of jelly with milk, often topped off with a scoop of ice cream. The first time I tried it with a Indian friend I was little worried because the cold chain for the Ice cream in India is not always close… but it was very good and I was not sick!
