Chiroti Rava Pani Poori & Spicy Chutney

Pani Poori name it self brings water in your mouth. I normally prepare Pani Poori at home. I do not know some how I don't feel like to eat that Pani Poori selling out side. Though it is there way of earning money to live, it is not at all comfortable for me to go and eat outside.

I have tried these pooris with chiroti rava (thin variety of semolina), very very small quantity of maida and salt. I have prepared the pani and the spicy chutney to have with this pooris. Potatoes are also used for filling.
Let us see some benefits of eating Pudina /Mint leaves in our diet.
Mint leaves have the best medicinal values. It is one of the superb herb which is used for many health issues. Mint helps in easy digestion. It is good remedy for nausea, depression and headache. It is used for treating ashtma and memory loss. Mint is known for refreshing breath. It is one of the oldest herb which in practice we use mint as home remedy for many sickness.

There are two steps. First we prepare small pooris and then proceed to spicy and sweet chutney.
