This snack is a very popular street food in West Bengal. You will enjoy these croquettes more from small street food shop / gumti / jhupri , though I don't have any experience of eating 'chingrir chop' from any restaurant. In US, there is no 'gumti', thats why I had to make those in my kitchen and brought the exact taste from Bengal. They were really delicious and we enjoyed them with chilli sauce, but you can also serve them with 'kasundi'. There are many ways of making these croquettes, here is how I made them.
