Unveiling ‘BTech Pani Puri Wali’s’ Trailblazing Culinary Odyssey

In the bustling bylanes of Delhi’s Tilak Nagar, culinary sensation Tapsi Upadhyay, renowned as ‘BTech Pani Puri Wali,’ has stirred both admiration and controversy with her unconventional journey. At just 22, she has transformed a humble paani puri cart into a nationwide sensation.

From Scooty to Thar: A Culinary Evolution

Tapsi’s journey began modestly, towing her paani puri cart with a Scooty, demonstrating her determination to overcome challenges. Progressing to a bike and later upgrading to the rugged Mahindra Thar last November, her evolution sparked unexpected criticism online. Negative comments flooded her social media, questioning the appropriateness of using the Thar for such unconventional purposes.

“My journey began with a Scooty… I bought my Thar on EMI. I don’t think there should be a problem with this,” Tapsi asserted, defending her choice and challenging stereotypes associated with her unique business methods.

Defying Conventional Norms: Anand Mahindra’s Unexpected Support

Tapsi’s defiance caught the attention of Anand Mahindra, Chairman of the Mahindra Group, who lauded her entrepreneurial spirit. In a post on ‘X,’ he commended her for using the Thar to explore new horizons and pursue her dreams. “Now you know why I love this video,” he remarked.

Despite the initial backlash, Tapsi expressed gratitude towards Anand Mahindra for recognizing and appreciating her work. “When I saw Anand Mahindra sharing my video and praising my work, I was very happy,” she acknowledged.

Gratitude and Expansion: BTech Pani Puri Wali’s Nationwide Presence

Now operating over 40 pani puri stalls across India, Tapsi Upadhyay’s venture stands as a testament to resilience and innovation triumphing over societal norms. Her gratitude towards Anand Mahindra reflects the power of recognition in boosting unconventional ventures.

In the world of BTech Pani Puri Wali, towing a Thar is not just a matter of convenience; it symbolizes breaking barriers and embracing unconventional paths.
