This is not only the history but also a mythological story centered on Fuchka. Today I will tell you some unknown facts about the two types of history of Fuchka which will surprise you.
You will be really surprised to know that the phuchka or golgappas that you are eating standing in the street today are also mentioned in the Puranas. If the mythology is to be believed, then Draupadi was the first to feed Fuchka, not only that, he fed Fuchka to the Pandavas. It is said that when the Pandavas were in exile, there was very little food in the house. So in order to test the daughter-in-law’s ability to run the household, Kunti asked her to fill the stomach of the Pandavas with some grains and some vegetables. And that was the challenge. At that time Draupadi made a phukka and filled the stomach of the Pandavas.
So much for mythology. But if you do not believe in this interpretation of the Puranas, then there is another theory for you. And according to that interpretation, it is a food related to the Magadha era. It was built by the king of Magadha in India three to four hundred years ago. Which later came to be known by various names in India.
