Homemade baked pani puri/ gol gappe/ puchka 

A few trials that were big flops and then one experiment changes the game. The puffed pani poori is chemical free and requires only a few ingredients. Hello friends, Who does not like gol gappe here? Perhaps there's hardly anyone other than me who is not fond of pani puri. But when your hubby loves puchka and you get a few requests to come up with a healthier gol gappa recipe, you know you have a task at hand. Finally, after a few Failures at getting it right, here's my successful version of baked gol gappa with semolina in airfryer. Happy with the result when you do everything from scratch.

You may not go back to the vendor if you are craving for a healthy fuchka. Yes, you may enjoy the street food sometimes because that's the only way those vendors will survive. But if the health bug has bitten you, like me, then there's no chance of street food as long as you are at home. The airfried pani puri with sooji is crispy and puffs easily in air fryer but it is not completely oil free. The reason is that a  no-oil golgappa tastes like dried chapati. We did not like it much. So the one with ghee had to be born and we all love it to the core.

I am not fond of gupchup but my hubby is, jus like all Odias, so I had to try making baked pani puri in air fryer because that's my favorite baking appliance. I have thousands of airfryer recipes on the channel as well as on my blog.

How To Make Pani Puri in Airfryer (Recipes Indian)

Yes, this golgappa recipe does not need oil so you may call it oil free but not fat free. There's 1 tbsp of ghee here, which lends color, crisp texture, taste, and flakiness to the baked gupchup.
Blend ghee, water, salt, and jeera powder together and make dough with semolina.
Keep aside for 30 minutes.
Knead dough for 2 min again and make small balls.
Take one ball. Press it gently. Fold inwards from all ends. Remove excess dough.
Make sure there are no gaps or holes in the ball.
Roll it out like a chapati - not too thin nor too thick.
Keep covered. Place the bottom side as is, that is, the front side on top and the lower side remains the bottom.
Preheat airfryer to 200 deg c for 5 minutes. Please remember to place the baking tray as well in the airfryer. We want it hot when we place the pooris.
Place each poori as is on the baking tray, that is, the lower side remains the bottom and the top side sits on top. This will help retain moisture in the golgappa and help it puff too in air fryer.
Bake for 5 min at 200 deg c. Open the airfryer and magic will happen.
Enjoy crispy puffed baked air fried golgappa with dates minty imli chutney and hing hazme ka pani. Fill the baked gup chup with boiled potato, boiled black chickpeas, black salt, onion, cucumber, jeera powder, and black pepper.

Can we use the soaked water for millets? Does millet need to be soaked?

Do millets contain anti-nutrients? Yes, they do. In fact, all whole grains, including oats, contain phytates, which bind to minerals and make their absorption difficult for the body. Soaking is the first step toward reducing anti-nutrients from millets. Soak for at least 6-8 hours to make digestion easier. Discard the soaked water and then proceed to the next step of cooking. Remove foam from top to reduce gassy elements from millets.  How long should millet be soaked before cooking? Soaking the millets overnight is a safe practice. Soaking breaks down the phytic acid in millets or for that matter grains and nuts. Phytic acid hinders the absorption of minerals and nutrients in food, including calcium, iron, and zinc. How? Phytates bind to minerals and nutrients and make their absorption difficult in the gut. Your tummy finds it tough to digest millets in that case. So soaking millets and draining off that soaked water makes it easier on your tummy.  Are millets safe for thyroid? Does
