Gupchup Ghuguni (Odiaଗୁପଚୁପ ଘୁଗୁନି) is a popular street food combination from the state of Odisha in India. It consists of two delicious dishes that are enjoyed together - Gupchup, which are crispy puffed balls filled with spiced mashed potatoes and chickpeas, and Ghuguni, which is a curry made with yellow peas and flavored with a variety of spices. In this blog post, we'll be exploring the origins of Gupchup Ghuguni and why it has become such a beloved street food combo in Odisha.


Gupchup is known by different names across India, such as Pani Puri, Gol Gappa, and Phuchka, but in Odisha, it is commonly referred to as Gupchup. The dish has its origins in North India and is believed to have been introduced to Odisha by migrant workers. Over time, the dish has evolved and become an integral part of Odisha's street food culture.

Ghuguni, on the other hand, is a traditional Odia dish that has been a staple in the region for centuries. It is made with yellow peas, which are cooked with a variety of spices such as turmeric, cumin, coriander, and ginger, and then garnished with chopped onions, coriander leaves, and a squeeze of lime.

Combining the two dishes into Gupchup Ghuguni has created a mouth-watering street food combo that is beloved by locals and tourists alike. The crispy and tangy Gupchup balls perfectly complement the spicy and flavorful Ghuguni curry.


Gupchup Ghuguni is a perfect example of how street food can bring people together and create a sense of community.
