If you’re thinking of trying street food in Pune one of your best bets at night is to head down to JM Road – Jangali Maharaj. For our Indian street food tour that evening with Dharmesh and David we tried the following dishes:
1) Masal Puri
The most colorful dish of the evening that we tried was Masal Puri. These hollowed out puffs are covered in a masala mix of puffed rice, sev, chaat masala, coriander and tomatoes. It was the crunchiest snack we tried all night.
2) Pani Puri
Our next street food snack is one of my favorites in all of India – Pani Puri! Hollowed out puri is stuffed with watery based chutneys that are minty, refreshing and spicy. It is an explosion of flavors as you pop one in your mouth.
3) Sponge Dosa
I was surprised when Dharmesh got to try our next Indian street food dish for the first time. Sponge dosa is similar to a spongy crepe or pancake and was served with three different types of chutney including tomato garlic, mint coconut and a potato mash. It was our favorite Indian street food snack of the night hands down.
4) Tawa Pulao
Our next dish, Tawa Pulao, was an incredible mix of different ingredients featuring rice cooked with tomatoes, onions, green pees and cheese on a tawa grill. It was kind of a fusion between Chinese style rice but with Indian spices.
Our last thing we tried was a buttermilk known locally as Masala Chaas. It has a strong unproccessed refreshing and sour taste. I have to say out of all the things I tried this was the one thing I didn’t like but it did help cool us all down.

Next up is Sponge Dosa. It is basically like an Indian crepe. We have different dipping sauces and I’m just going to get after it.
It feels really spongy in the hands. I’m just going to rip off a little piece. I’m going to try this sauce. It is a mint coconut chutney.
