India is a land of cultural delight. Here at every 15 Kms, culture changes, so does language and many others. From Kashmir to Kanyakumari, Rajasthan to Assam and seven beautiful states of North east, what binds most of the Indians together is food.Here in fusion food today we aim to combine that cultural diversity of India and bring forth a dish which is like NEWS. Yup North, East, West and South. A wonderful combination and amalgamation of flavors across all the corners of India

 IBL’s wonderful Foodie contest has put my culinary skills at test. Offcourse what could be better than to try out a fusion dish. So I decided to make something unique. I made Theplas (inspired by Gujarat-West), filled it up with paneer-corn bhurji (A north Indian delicacy), shaped it and fried/steamed it like momos (Dumplings from East) and served it with finger-licking wholesome coconut and Pudhina chutney (a south Indian speciality).

Ah! So there you have a perfect fusion dish: Mombai Magic– India steamed on your plate. It is not just easy to make but also yummyliciously divine. Try it and experience bliss. 

To make this  recipe, we need-
Core Ingredients: Paneer (Cottage cheese ), Sweet Corn (boiled), Methi Leaves, Gram Flour (Chickpea) & Flour
Saute: Garlic & Ginger (chopped), Tomatoes (chopped), Green Chillies, Oil
