Shreeji, New Flavored Pani-Puri Wonder

Khaugalli August 12, 2015

The other day, I was walking in the rains and craving for Pani-Puri. There was a quiet a battle going inside my head – to eat or not to eat. As you know, rains are strictly the season one should avoid chaats or overall street food given our hygiene scenario. I was thinking  to break the rule this time…. really, one-time Pani-Puri can’t kill you…or can it?

And I bumped into this newest small joint, Shreeji, in Tirupati Nagar. Small, yet pretty and clean. Moreover, they had different flavors of Pani-Puri. The varied flavour Pani-Puri joint is not first in Virar, but I hadn’t come across any until this one(write to twocents@virarandwest.com if there are more).

Shreeji has 5 types of flavored Pani Puri: Regular, Peru (Guava), Hajma Hajam (The Appetizer), Pudina(Mint) and Lassan(Garlic)

I really liked the garlic flavor. On my second visit, I liked the Peru flavor even better which earlier I thought was not a good idea. The vendor told  me the Peru flavor will last till the season of the fruit lasts. This means they use natural flavor. As the season perishes, Peru will be followed by some then seasonal flavour. The puri used is Sindhi puri and I liked that variation too. Although, Pani is always the soul of the dish.

On my second visit Ice-Golas in paper bowls too were on the menu. There is indeed some missing-on-fun excerpting, sucking syrup flavors from the ice lolly, but this one also saves you from that disappointment when half of the lolly  falls off. There was malai gola too which I didn’t try..the cream + ice combination should be ice-creamy I guess..

There are other chaat items, a little sweet given to local demand…but you can get modified taste with instructions. Sandwiches I didn’t check. There is coming-soon attraction of Thatte idli, and something awaited as Mr Mehta, the owner of Shreeji, successfully attempts in building my excitement around it.

Mainly, I’m more excited about hygiene and pani-puri flavors. I really hope that they continue to be clean and there are more chaat thellas understanding our need to eat clean.

    Shevala is an edible, exotic vegetable, botanically related to the family of Suran Flower. You can compare the similarity with the help of pictures (especially the inflorescence structure). Both, Suran flower and Shevala taste similar after cooking and have a very limited season. The difference is Shevala is not a plant grown on farms. You […]

    The name, Uncle Aunty, evokes a feeling of bonding from the start. There must be more to the name as we see that the customers coming in are frequent visitors, quite used to the place. We were correctly informed then about this sandwich corner which the owners, yes the uncle and aunty, who tell us […]
