After falling in love with India during my first trip to the country in February of 2018, I knew I had to go back as soon as possible, so I planned an epic, 18-day trip for November of that year that would take me through the cities of Pune, Hyderabad, Amritsar, Bengaluru, Chennai, Kolkata, and Ahmedabad. It was an unforgettable trip that was packed with incredibly diverse food, unforgettable cultural experiences, and trips to fascinating historical sites. Best of all, I got to explore the country with my good friend Sam from Samuel & Audrey!

To kick off our fourth and final day in Kolkata, I linked back up with my friend Navpreet from Fun On Streets, a company that offers tours that highlight Kolkata’s food, history, architecture, arts, and culture. She took us on a spectacular, yet intimate, breakfast food tour of the city’s Little Rajasthan locality that I won’t soon forget. Come along with me, Sam, and Navpreet as we begin our day with some of Kolkata’s most mind-blowing Rajasthani food!

I started with a dish called Hing Kachori (5 rupees per piece), an aromatic dish made with round, flattened wheat flour balls stuffed with Urad Dal, potatoes, and lots of spices. The kachoris were crispy, hollow, and a little doughy, and the gravy was minty and packed with soft, spice-filled potatoes. It was a delicious snack to start my day with!
We walked through the oldest part of as we headed to our next destination, Krishna Bhandar, where I tried a Singara, a fried and stuffed dish that is considered the East-Indian version of the Samosa. It was crunchy and filled with vegetables including potatoes and carrots, and even though it wasn’t very spicy, it had a nice kick to it.
I followed that with a sweet made with cottage cheese called Chumchum, which is dunked in a sugar syrup and rolled in a dry milk powder called mawa. It was super dense and a little hard on the outside, but was still very sweet and tasted exactly like the Rasgulla I’d tried two days earlier.
Our next stop was Brijwasi Sweets, where we had a medium-sized chai (8 rupees), which was so delicious we went for a second round!
From there, we stopped at another stall and tried the Kadhi Kachori (20 rupees), a Kachori dish with a yogurt-based curry with lentils along with turmeric, red chili powder, garam masala, coriander, and other spices. It was sweet, savory, and spicy and had a nice crunch due to the crunchy, fried noodles in it. It kind of reminded me of a samosa chaat and was so delicious and filling! I couldn’t get enough of it!
As late morning approached and the temperature rose, we visited Kaligodam for some Jalebi (12 rupees), a crunchy and extremely sweet fried dough dish that is covered in a gooey sugar syrup. It’s similar to an elephant ear in America.
Our next dish was Chena Toast (60 rupees), a buttery toasted sandwich that contained cottage cheese (chena), onions, tomatoes, and chilies. It was almost like a grilled cheese sandwich if it were made with cottage cheese. The onions were really crispy and the bread was nice and fluffy. My favorite toast dish in Kolkata!
We ended our breakfast food tour with a banana milkshake (40 rupees) that contained khus syrup, which is a thick, greenish syrup that is made from the roots of khus grass. It added a nice sweetness to the bananas. The shake itself was full of pure banana flavor and was incredibly refreshing!
This was my favorite breakfast food tour of all-time! Everything I had blew my mind and I loved it all. If you’re ever in Kolkata, contact my friend Navpreet to go on a fun, authentic, and informative street food tour where you also learn about the history and culture of this amazing city!
