I have had paani puri from almost all parts of India; and hell, I am Bengali. So, ‘puchka’ is supposed to be like a gospel. But, for me the paani puri of Pune is always on the top of the charts. You could devour these little bursts of joy at Ganesh Bhel or Kalyan Bhel or a roadside vendor opposite Fergusson college or one in any of the galli bolas of Pune; the spicy, sweet, tangy and crunchy pools of flavour will never let you down. And that taste of Pune, you will never find in any other paani puri all over India.
