The Fried Fritters and Samosas : Indians love their fried foods and raise their lipid profile like no one else in the world.In this image you can see a small eatery shop in Howrah town across the Hooghly river.Howrah has predominant North Indian Population and as a result the eatery dishes out savories of North Indian Flavours - Puris and Samosas.Coal ovens are used here to deep fry the samosas and puris in thick bottomed black vessels called Karhais.The samosa contains a maida flour shell stuffed with some filling, generally a mixture of mashed boiled potato, onion, green peas, spices and green chili;The entire pastry is then deep fried to a golden brown colour, in vegetable oil. It is served hot and is often eaten with fresh Indian chutney, such as mint, coriander or tamarind. It can also be prepared as a sweet form, rather than as a savory one. Samosas are often served in chaat, along with the traditional accompaniments of yogurt, chutney, chopped onions, coriander, and chaat masala.
