The automatic pani puri machine works entirely on sensors to prompt the flow of the flavoured water across different nozzles. The pani puri seller hands a plate of puris stuffed with filling to the customer, who then proceeds to the machine to fill them up with the pani of choice. There are three different kinds of pani for the golgappas - garlic jal jeera, dhaniya pudina and khatta meetha.
