How many times have you felt that you should be preparing something different whenever there are guests at your place? Many times right? The North Indian mouth-watering snacks like Samosa, Chole-Bhature, Dahi-Bhalla, Papdi Chat etc are always a favourite or for that matter the first choice for any foodie, but why not serve something special and different this time to your guests.

Last Sunday, when some of my friends visited my house for a get together, amongst the snacks that were served with tea, one item was Vegetable Chop and everyone enjoyed it to their heart’s content. Vegetable Chop happens to be a favorite snack item of Bengal, appreciated by one and all. The process may sound little tedious but the end result is always rewarding.
