The present study was undertaken to investigate the microbiological quality of panipuri sold in Amravati, India. Forty water sample of panipuri were aseptically collected from eleven locations of Amravati City. Analysis of the food samples revealed that 93% of panipuri water samples had high loads of bacterial pathogens such as Escherichia coli (41%), Staphylococcus aureus (31%), Klebsiella sp. (20%), Pseudomonas sp. (5%) and yeast (3%). It is suggested that regular monitoring of the quality of street foods must be practiced to avoid any food-borne infection in future.
