Today is Mahalaya, the day when Navaratra starts. It seems to be a Monsoon festive celebration this year.Almost every day it’s raining.And you can only crave for some crispy keema samosa with your afternoon tea.
Samosa is a popular street-food in India.The crispy pastry stuffed with mutton mince is deep fried to golden color. Keema Samosa remind me of my days in Hyderabad. I absolutely adore them.I have also found them on streets of Kolkata.But they differ in taste and size.
Serve them with Iraini Chai or Nimbu Chai, both will make your evening wonderful.You can also try with paneer bhurji for a veg version.you can add potatoes and green peas to it too.
But keema samosa is so good for a meat-lover like me.Unlike North-India Navaratri celebration, there is no such restriction in food Odisha and west-Bengal. There are many places in Bangalore where Durga-puja is celebrated among Bengali communities. Food stalls selling delicious Bengali dishes are easily spotted there.
Some popular combination like luchi and kosha-mansho, chicken biriyani and chaap ..lastly samosa and rasogolla are not to be missed. I love Bengali version chicken biriyani too where a piece of potato is a must.
Last year I went to Kolkata to witness the grand celebration of Dushara. One should visit the city of joy during Durga Puja.It was just fabulous. I had that Keema Samosa too during pandal hopping.
You can serve them with tamarind sweet chutney.
