About the street foods in Kolkata, nothing is perhaps more yummy than phuchka With potato smashed and chiliy and chola, it really tastes awesome There is also bhelpuri, masala muri, aloo kabli and ghugni that are equally famous here.

The Indian Street Food vary from region to region .The typical North Indian street food is Chaat -a generic name for all tangy ,spicy not very nutritious delicacies. The tangy flavor comes from the use of lemon, pomegranate seeds, black salt, tamarind, and various chutneys.Chaat can be prepared with fruits Golgappalike guava,banana ,papaya,apple etc.Use of paapri ,which is crisp pancakes made from fried flour with some out of yoghurt ,potatoes sauteed with black cumin powder with some amout of meetha and khatta chutney sweet and sour pickle with a dash of coriander becomes the lip smacking Paapri Chaat.The Pani Puri also called golgappa in some places in India is another street delicacy.Panipuris are hollow crisp balls made from dough, and filled as-you-eat with a spicy concoction of water and potatoes, topped by a choice of sweet or spicy chutney.

Instead of using water as a serving base in Fuchka these days, dahi yogurt is being used in some street corners. The yogurt is beaten after adding a little date chutney. Ground spices are sprinkled over it and garnished with sev mamra. A recent emergence in the presentation of Fuchka in metro cities involves the use of vodka as an intoxicating substitute for the more traditional stuffings. Typically, this serving method is confined to privately-hosted parties, and is also seen practised among street vendors of posh areas.

For foods, Kolkata is the mini edition of the Nation. This city is undoubtedly the ultimate food station. Start counting from South, North and East, countless or endless will be your list. At any nook or corner just trace a room, An eatery is always there to mushroom. Encircle the man who serves phuchka, alu-dum, dahibara, Unless you go for alu-chap, kachauri and singara. Chilly-chicken and chowmein with coloured sauces, Indianisation is one of the causes. Bring in the whole North with various chuts, For this, dont indulge in ifs and buts. Idly, vada, dosa are the glories of the South, They are meant and ready to fill your mouth. For the office-babu footpaths provide rice plate, Veg and non-veg can be had early or late. Momo as the recent stuff is much in the air, Steamed or fried have anything as fair. All these ought to be taken any time and for good, Only the enemy of the people will call them junk food.
