Kolkata Egg Roll

Kolkata Egg Roll is one of the most loved Kolkata street foods. Delicious flaky flat bread, covered with egg on one side and filled with a simple salad of onion and cucumber. Little amount of chaat masala is added for flavor and sometimes, a pinch of Indian black salt also goes in. A tiny dollop of ketchup and its wrapped casually. The vendors will always make it fresh and serve piping hot to hungry customers passing by. Kolkata Egg Roll makes for a great meal option too and often, it’s my go to when I am out of dinner ideas.

Crunchy flat green beans and creamy eggplant cooked with mild spices using potatoes for the perfect starch to bind it all together. Chorchori is one of those Bengali pure vegetarian dishes that my Mom would often prepare. Especially on the days in the week when we would eat just vegetarian food! While people may think that Bengalis are meat lovers, there are vegetarian dishes such as this that we equally enjoy. Chorchori can be prepared with different medley of vegetables. This Shim Beguner Chorchori is one of the most common combination used.

Labra (Mix Vegetable Medley)

Sometimes I wonder who names these dishes? Labra may sound a little funny. But I can assure you it’s like no other vegetable curry or stew that you have tried before. Labra (Mix Vegetable Medley) is a quintessential festive food. It is best paired with Khichuri/Khichdi. The vegetables are slow cooked to release their juices that blends together to form a perfectly tasty dish. It’s very mildly spiced side dish. You definitely need to try, if you haven’t already.
