3. How To Make An Indian PANI for Pani Puri

An all time favorite in the chaat category is Pani Puri (aka Gol Guppas or Puchkaas). You can’t have Puri without the Pani. It is a mix that has depths of flavor. So when you put a Pani Puri in your mouth, it’s a burst of different levels of unbelieveable flavor. A lot of the ingredients are to taste and you can make it spicer or milder. After a round of Pani with the Puris, make sure you have some pani by itself – absolute bliss!
4. Sweet, Sour, and Spicy Indian Soup

Gujarati Daal (or daar) has a perfect balance of flavors — sweet, sour, spicy! Combined with plain white rice, this daal is the ultimate end to a traditional Gujarati thali. Try this yummy recipe and don’t be afraid to adjust it to your tastes!
5. Coconut Fish Dream

This is a totally delicious and versatile sauce, which is similar to, but simpler than a qurma (or korma) sauce (as there are no white poppy seeds or nuts) which you can use for fish, vegetables, chicken, prawns or any seafood really. It is also wonderful with crayfish, clams or lobster! Qurmas were introduced to India by the Mughal Empire, who loved adding a luxurious creaminess to their savoury sauces, and indeed, this can be made with single or double cream, but Vicky uses coconut milk because it makes it unctuous and delicious!
