Athletes usually pay close attention to their diet and stay away from junk food to maintain their bodies. Well, according to Neeraj Chopra, our desi pani puri is the best street food snack for athletes. Neeraj revealed this in an interview given to ESPN.
Our gold medalist stated to ESPN that he feels there’s no harm in eating pani puri. In his opinion it’s the best street food for athletes if eaten once in a while. The reason behind this is that pani puri consists mostly of water that fills your stomach. The puri is quite light and is made with flour. Pani Puri also has very little spice in it and thus there is no harm in indulging in it.
Do you know that Neeraj Chopra is also a good cook and is proud of his recipe of namkeen chawal? When asked about his favourite cheat meal that he would like to have after his win in the interview with ESPN, Neeraj Chopra said that he usually likes to have something sweet. Neeraj said that usually he restricts the amount of sweets he eats, but he really likes a homemade churma, which is prepared with crushed roti, ghee and sugar. This is something he normally can’t eat while training so it’s a perfect cheat meal for him.
