Let’s Have a Chaat! Sent to Ohio & Texas


Have you ever tried pani puri?

That’s what I asked the recipients of these two postcards, lovingly hewn from a box that originally contained the makings of a quick home version of this popular Indian street snack.  I’ve had pani puri at Indian restaurants (and a street cart) in my area, and when I saw the kit on sale at a local Desi market, I had to try it.  It’s a down & dirty take on a more complicated dish–but that doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy every bite!

The cards are going out for a swap-bot “upcycled cardboard” postcard trade, and they went off to swappers in Kent, Ohio and Universal City, Texas.
