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. Shim Beguner Chorchori is a classic Bengali pure vegetarian dish. It is very mildly spiced and taste great with rice or roti.
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.
