Mexican Pani Puri… a fusion twist on an Indian classic. It’s perfect for Cinco de Mayo or a summer barbecue.
I wish I could take credit for this recipe, but my cousin, Ajay, gets credit for this one. I first tried his Mexican Pani Puri this past Christmas and I couldn’t believe he made the pani and the corn salsa from scratch.
He later came clean and told me the pani is actually just Trader Joe’s Zhoug Sauce and water, and the corn salsa is also from TJs.
I was impressed he even came up with this concoction because it was so quick and easy. It literally takes minutes to put together.
This Cinco de Mayo, make this delicious Indian Mexican appetizer using just 6 ingredients. You’ll need three out of six ingredients from the Indian Grocery Store, and the rest from Trader Joe’s.
