Shree Neelkamal makes street food taste better

Ever since the lockdown started, most of us are craving for two things: a carefree ‘normal’ life and street food. Our taste buds are strongly suffering so how about bringing your favourite street food home by whipping up some of these delicious food items that you are missing due to the quarantine.

Kathi Roll

A Kathi roll is a street food that originated from Kolkata, West Bengal. In its original form, it is a skewer roasted kebab wrapped in a paratha. Kathi Roll is one of the easiest recipes to prepare at home.

First, you need to prepare a soft and smooth dough with Shree Neelkamal Atta along with a little salt and water. Once the dough is ready, cover with a damp cotton cloth and keep it aside till required.

  • Heat oil in a non-stick pan. Then add some sliced onion, capsicum, and tomatoes.
  • Add turmeric powder and ginger-garlic paste to the pan. Mix well and saute for 2-3 minutes. Add tomato puree. Mix well and cook on high heat for a minute.
  • Add cottage cheese, salt, red chili powder, and garam masala powder. Mix well and cook till done. Place a chapati on a worktop.
  • Mix mint-coriander chutney and yogurt and spread a spoonful of yogurt-chutney evenly on it. Place a spoonful of the vegetable filling on one side of the chapatti.
  • Sprinkle a few fresh mint leaves, onion rings, and chaat masala on top. Roll the chapati tightly.

Papdi Chaat

Papdi chaat is a delicious street food that has all the flavors in one bite – spicy, sweet, and tangy . Mix Shree Neelkamal Maida, ghee, onion seeds, and salt in a bowl. Add water, a spoonful at a time, and knead until you get a firm, smooth dough. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and allow it to rest for 20 minutes.

  • Divide the dough into equal-sized balls. Roll the dough balls out into 1/4-inch-thick circles using a rolling pin.
  • Use a circular cookie cutter to cut out small circles.
  • Fry them in hot oil until they are crisp and pale golden.
  • Top them with boiled potatoes, thick yogurt, sprouted mung beans, mint, and tamarind chutney.
  • Garnish with some chopped onion, coriander, and sev.

Vada Pav

A popular indian street food recipe prepared mainly with pav bread and deep fried potato vada stuffing.

  • In a mixing bowl, add Shree Neelkamal besan, rice flour, salt, turmeric and whisk well. Add enough water to make a thick batter. Whisk well until you get a lump-free batter. Once ready, keep it aside for 15-20 minutes.
  • In a blending jar, add green chilies, garlic cloves, and ginger and make a coarse paste.
  • Then heat oil in a pan add in mustard seeds and let them splutter for a few seconds. Then curry leaves and saute for a few seconds. Add green chili paste and saute on medium heat. Add turmeric powder and saute for some more.
  • Then add in the mashed potatoes, salt and mix well. Cook for a few minutes. Remove from heat and let the potato mixture cool completely. Divide the potato mixture into balls.
  • Using a spoon, dip each vada into the batter to coat the mixture. Deep fry batter-coated vadas in hot oil over medium heat until golden brown. Serve with garlic and green chutney.
