Panipuri Seller

Known as phuchka in West Bengal and Bangladesh and golgappa in parts of north India….The phuchka hawker is everywhere on the roads surrounded by women and men. The way they serve the food is a treat for the spectators. This is one food item that you would like to savour standing on your feet, raising the succulent flour balls to your mouth and closing your eyes!

I used Uniball black Click Gel pen and Camlin water colour paints for the above sketch.

Phuchka (or fuska or puska) differs from panipuri in content and taste. It uses a mixture of boiled gram and spiced mashed potatoes as the filling, and is tangy rather than sweetish while the water is sour and spicy. [Source: Wikipedia]
