Indian Cone-y Delights is an ideal appetizer for a cold winter evenings and dull rainy days. Like most Indian street foods, this appetizer is “chatpata” (tangy) in taste that you won’t find in other cuisines. The cone-y delight also has flavors emanating from the use of chillies and other spices.

Indian cone-y delight is a simple appetizer. It is easy to make. There are just 2 components to this recipe – the cone and the stuffing. The cones are made from won ton wraps, which you can easily get from the market. You can also use samosa wraps in place of won ton wraps based on the availability. You can either fry the wraps or bake them. For this recipe, I have fried the won-ton wraps.

I like fresh ingredients in my dishes as it provides the best flavors. For the stuffing, I soaked 1/2 cup white peas overnight (in place of using canned peas).

Inspiration for Indian Cone-y Delights

After coming to the US, I was missing the Mumbai and Kolhapuri street food quite a lot. Though Indian restaurants serve some variations of these street foods, it does not taste the same. I was just craving for the chatpata taste of ragada and samosa, but wanted to create a healthy variation for the same. Strolling through the food mart, I came across the won ton wraps. I decided to experiment with that for creating a quick and easy but healthy Indian street food. This resulted in the Indian Cone-y Delights.

About Indian Cone-y Delights

This appetizer is a treat for everyone, especially vegans who crave for the street food taste. Serve the cone-y delights with a cup of Indian masala chai (without milk for vegans).
