I realize a lot of people will be ordering pepper-and-egg sandwiches from their favorite Italian beef stands until Easter, but if you're looking for something a little more interesting, head to West Rogers Park. There, along Devon Avenue, you'll find Sukhadia's, a tidy little Indian snack shop offering both sweet and savory items. I've become enamored with their pani puri - a standard Indian street food snack containing chickpeas and potatoes, enhanced by sweet tamarind-date sauce and a surprisingly fiery mint-chile sauce. Even if you don't live near the neighborhood, <a href="http://www.sukhadia.com/il_main.asp">Sukhadia's</a> has a few other locations in the region, including one in Hoffman Estates. Sukhadia's is located at 2559 West Devon Avenue, 8100 Ridgewood Avenue, Skokie, and 1016 West Golf Road, Hoffman Estates.</p></p> Tue, 08 Mar 2011 12:00:00 -0600 http://www.wbez.org/blog/steve-dolinsky/2011-03-08/something-you-should-eat-pani-puri-sukhadias-83377
