Kolkatta Street Egg rolls.


I am sure all of us LOVE street food. At least I DO. So when Sia of Monsso Spice announced the theme of MBP was street food.
I was overjoyed. Making those delicious food we see in the street stalls and sometimes which we are not allowed to eat by our loved ones.

There have been many time when I was grumpy when my mom didn't buy them for me.
Can you imagine the drool comming out from my mouth watching people eating in these stalls and me not getting them. RRRRRRRRrrrrrrrrrrrr.

So I went hunting looking for a street foof recipe.

Which for my delight I found in Mandira's Place Ahaar and it was Egg rolls.. And I saw the pictures how she made them and I was like can't wait to try them.
As i remember seeing them in Kolkatt when we were visiting and now this time it was my hubby who refused to allow me to eat them so there i was drooling again in the street :-(
Next time I am not listening to him

Mandira made with mushrooms.
Knowing my carnivorous daughter and hubby i thought I will make them with chicken.

I did thespices like her but used chicken instead of mushroom and as it was chicken i added more chillies and corriander powder.

Oh and she used shop bought toritilla and i made my own, ,ot toritillas but Maida chapathies.I coudn't take good pictures.
How can I , when there is two of them waiting for their food telling they are starving so had to hurry up.
Thankyou Mandira the rolls were Delicious.

Hubby coudn't wait to eat them as he saw what i was preparing in the kitchen. And this from the guy who didn't allow me to eat them.Recipe you can get from here
This is my entry for Sia's MBP street food. Aren't we all in love with this logo, it is really beautiful.

Kribha said...

Grrr... HC. You have made me hopelessly hungry by looking at your egg rolls. JUST AWESOME. Got to try this when I regain my position in my kitchen. Right now my MIL rules. I'm just a sous chef. My in-laws are stuck with the traditional things that they don't want to try anything new. So I have left the cooking completely to her. But I'm gonna try this first thing when they leave. Thanks for the recipe.
