Chow mein—Calcutta-street-style—Durga Pujo Special—Kolkata Street Food—Indo Chinese
Chow mein is a ubiquitous street food found in every neighbourhood in Calcutta. It was quite possibly the cautious Bengali’s first foray into Chinese food and originated from the Calcutta Chinatown. The flavours are quite Indianised with street vendors often adding their own spice mixes to their creations. It is almost always garnished generously with chopped onions, cucumbers, ketchup and green chilli sauce (another Indian Chinese condiment that originated in Calcutta’s Chinatown).
