Each Indian city is famous for it’s own food habitat. This speciality is found in street food as well. Rolls are most popular street food of the city of joy. While talking about rolls I remember my college days I mean my hostel stay @ Kolkata. After coming back from hectic college schedule we used enjoy a spicy snack time in the evening with our regular chit-chat. But this was not our daily routine as we were students not able to afford egg roll every day but we never missed our gossip ;). How to make egg roll at home is a common question. Recently I tried this at home, here is the recipe for my beloved readers.
Kolkata Rolls / Kolkata Egg Roll /Egg Roll
Eggs – 2
All purpose flour (Maida) – 1
Onion – ½ cup , sliced
Green chilli – 1 teaspoon, chopped
Cucumber – ½ cup, chopped
Black salt – ½ teaspoon
Black pepper powder – ½ teaspoon
Tomato ketchup – 2 teaspoon
Chilli sauce – 1 teaspoon
Tissue paper – 2
Salt to taste
Refined oil – 2 tablespoon
Take maida, salt and 2 teaspoon of refined oil in a bowl. Knead the maida (using water)and cover it with damp cloth for sometime. Now make big round shaped balls from maida and roll into circle with 5 inch diameter. Take a pan and heat it over gas and put the rolled circle (roti) into it, when once side is done turn it to the other side. Roast the rotis and keep them ready.
Now beat egg (each egg for each roll) in a bowl with little salt. Heat oil in a flat bottom pan/tawa and spread the egg in a circular manner and place a roti immediately on it, before the omlette is cooked. When the bottom part of the egg is done, turn the egg(along with roti) to the other side. So one side of the roti is covered with egg. Place the roti side down on a half fold tissue paper and egg side on the top such a way that half the portion of the roll will be covered with tissue paper.Then place the mixture of onion, cucumber and green chilli at the medium portion of the roti. Spread chilli & tomato sauce, black salt and black pepper. Now roll the roti along with the tissue paper. You can also add some chopped tomatoes or lime juice into inside stuffing . Your Evening snacks is ready to eat.
