Indian Street Food has been a never ending story. Every part of India has its flavor in its streets. And we Indians are crazy about it no matter what. But the monsoon season is a threat when you feel hygiene is the biggest concern. But why not try them out at home and gulp the crazy cravings in a weekend evening or night.
The thoughts, I scribbled above, were all mine today, when me and my husband wanted a break from the normal Chapati-Subzi dinner. The very idea of making veg-roll at home came to me.
It’s easy and a treat to your taste buds and for a change you feel wonderful when the ‘Thela’ (movable food stalls) is all set at your home with 100% hygienic and the oil factor is controlled by you too.
The recipe of Veg Roll goes like this:
For the Filling:
- Cabbage – 1/4 medium sized, finely chopped
- Carrot – 1 finely grated
- Onions – 1 finely sliced
- Vegetable Oil – 1 tbsp

- All purpose Flour or Maida – 1 cup
- Vegetable Oil – 1tsp
- Salt according to the taste
- Tissue Paper
- Onion – 1 medium sized, finely sliced
