We can't really get enough of these. My all time favorite and a must have on Indian streets. You can't complete your shopping without the mouth watering Gol Gappas.

They are called Pani Puri in Western India and Puchka in Kolkata region.

Though Gol Gappas are normally made with All Purpose Flour (Maida), these are for those special persons who are allergic to Gluten. For those who do not know, there is a disease called Celiac which makes a person allergic to an element present in wheat, barley and some other products. There is no particular medicine to cure this disease. The only option available is to eat Gluten Free food items like this one.

      For your knowledge and knowledge of other celiac patients and gluten allergic patients…Soy is not gluten free, unless certified organic and certified gf, its also one of the last things a celiac pateient to eat

        Hi Taruna,
        Soy is gluten-free. Some people with celiac disease are also intolerant to soy, but certainly not all.

        Here is more information about it:

        You point is right in the sense that foods that contain Soy may have been made with other ingredients which do contain gluten. Hence, for those foods, you should always look at the label ‘gluten free’ to consume. If they are not specifically marked ‘Gluten free’ and contain Soy in addition to other ingredients, you should avoid them.

        For your knowledge, Taruna, Soy is GF as its a bean. As long as the flour is produced in a dedicated gluten free facility there is no reason Coeliac sufferers should avoid eating it.

        The above negativity aside, nany many thanks to In House recipes! I just tried the recipe and the puris were perfect. I added a little Xanthan Gum to help keep the structure, and the puris tasted no different to the normal ones! Thanks for bringing Pani Puri back to my Gluten free life!
