While many regions in India have their own variations of Gol - gappa / PaniPuri, the most famous ones are from UttarPradesh. Biharis operate most of the chaat stalls all over the country.

In Bengal, Bihar, Jharkhand and Orissa, it is called phoochka ( puchka ). Many people enjoy this particular recipe. These do not contain any sweet or mint.

In Maharashtra, the recipe is usually spicier, and also contains 'boondi' or sprouts in addition to other ingredients. Other names are golgappa (plural: golguppe ). In certain central parts and Orissa, it is also known as gupchup.

While in Gujarat it is called PaniPuri. It is made with the help of different types of water. Such as amlikapani, nimbukapani, phudineka pan, khhajurkapani, etc. You can also enjoy it with curd and different types of masalas like onion, sev, nuts, etc.
