It’s Gol Gappe. No, it’s pani puri. There’s absolutely no turning back from this debate. While Indians unanimously love this mouth watering street snack, they can’t agree upon its name. The crispy fried balls filled with tangy chutneys and a savoury pani is found almost all across the country but with different names. While some love to call it ‘Gol Gappe’, many name it ‘pani puri’. Others also call it ‘puchka, and ‘pani ke batashe’.
Recently, desi Twitterati were at war and the micro-blogging site saw two rising teams — Team Gol Gappe and Team Pani Puri. With thousands of tweets, each team made sure to prove why their name is the correct one for the street snack.
To declare ‘gol gappe’ as the ultimate champion, a user posted a picture of the street snack alongside a glass of water and Indian bread puri. While another wrote, “Good morning to everyone except the people who say Pani Puri instead of Gol Gappe.”

Yaar pani puri kaise bol lere ho? I feel so weird saying pani puri, koi sense hai iss word mein. Pani puri is a word, gol gappe is an emotion🤡✅

Backing team pain puri, a user tweeted, “Gol Gappe literally sounds like an insult lol at least “Pani Puri” describes the dish.” “Its literally pani in Puri. How do people have the audacity to call it gol gappe,” another pointed out.
