It was 6:30 in the morning, though a late riser, but today something pushed me to rise early. Last night didn’t have dinner, as I was completely filled after a pizza party at my friend’s place. Probably I was hungry and that made me come out from my sweet dream 😉
Today is 24th August, our very own City of Joy – Kolkata was born. Thought what could have been special than celebrating Kolkata’s birthday in a ‘foody’ way! My sudden early rise forced me to come out from my home and took me straight to the ‘Singara’ shop. ‘Singara’, most traditionally called ‘Samosa’ and one of the preferred snacks across India – falls among the list of known #Kolkatastreetfood. I could feel I was almost flowing with the smell of the freshly fried ‘singaras’. However, as I reached the shop, all the fried ones were sold off already. I was sad as I realized nothing else other than the yummy snacks could make me smile. The shopkeeper ‘BABU DA’ tried convincing me saying – “please wait for some time and I will get you some tasty singaras for you”. Still, it didn’t sound convincing as I had a feeling that the entire process would take time as they were also preparing other snacks ( Kachuri), which was all the more demanding.
As I kept seeking something interesting in that mundane state, suddenly I caught by few freshly made Singaras, which were yet to get fried. In fact a person, who was sitting completely out from our view, was found preparing the singaras on a table. He was seen combing potatoes, spices, cauliflower, peas and salt to make a dry curry. I really enjoyed the stuffing part into a cone shape thereby forming a ‘Triangle’ 🙂
As Kolkata is popularly known for its rich culture, heritage and ‘food’, I thought nothing else could make a Monday Mundane Challenge (MUNDANE MONDAY CHALLENGE #21) all the more fruitful and exciting. Serve it with mint ‘chutney’ and see how delicious and yummy it tastes?
Celebrating Kolkata’s ‘Happy’ Birthday with Kolkata’s Birthday Triangle – ‘Singara/Samosa’ 🙂
HAVE A GREAT TIME AHEAD AND THANK YOU FOR VISITING — Cheers JAAZ 🙂
