India is home to so many people from different regions, following their unique traditions, celebrating different festivals, and of course gorging on such a huge spread of authentic delicacies. Today, I am talking about Kolkata’s iconic food items; the most famous street food of the City of Joy. Harsh Goenka recently shared the reasons behind his love for the city and we are completely drooling over it.

If you are not from Kolkata, do not worry as I am taking you through all the tempting treats that are surely a must-try. Harsha Goenka shared pictures of everyone’s favourite Phuchka, chatpata Jhal Muri, mouth-watering Ghugni, and spicy Churmur.
- Phuchka is a bite of deliciousness. A bite of crispy fried puffed puris stuffed with chatpata potato filling and dipped in tangy water is a burst of flavours.
- Jhal Muri is a savoury snack made with puffed rice and some Indian spices and mixed well with some oil.
- Ghugni is the perfect partner we are all looking for. From pau ruti (bread) to luchi to porota (paratha), this delicious chickpea curry goes well with everything.
- Churmur is such a beautiful snack that we can never get tired of eating. Made with a spicy mixture of boiled potatoes, spices, and crushed phuchka, churmur is indeed a must-try.
Harsh Goenka has some recommendations as well. Kolkata has so many popular places that serve amazing street food. If you are wondering about his favourite place in the city, he shared that as well.

Churmur is love. I prefer it over phuchka. I don’t think it’s popular outside bengal.

There is always ongoing competition among the residents of several cities and states arguing over the best street food. Well, which Indian city do you think serves the best street food in the country?
