This item is NOT to be confused with the golguppa of Punjab-Haryana, the phulki of Uttar Pradesh or the paani-puri of Maharashtra. This is not simply a snack. It is a way of life for a Bengali. It is poetry. It is romance. It is sensuality. It is pure, raw, unbridled lust.
Bengali women gush like teenagers while writing eloquent pieces about how phuchka is a work of art in their blogs (and on Samosapedia), the Bengali man's favorite fantasy is sharing a tangy, naughty plate with his woman while getting drenched in the rain. The Bengali kid will steal a tenner from Bapi's wallet to indulge in this sin. Even the high-society Park Street type Bengali aunty can't resist the temptation once in a while.
Phuchka is sacred. Always remember that.
