This snacks item is one of my fav from the street food in Odisha. Its easy to make but I never really tried before as I was thinking it’s a big deal and who will take the effort. But during my pregnancy I had craving for all Odia food items which is not available in Bangalore . So did a hit n trial and made this one…

12) Take a kadai/pan and heat some oil (depends if you want to shallow or deep fry, I did shallow frying so will mention that)
13) Once the oil is heated, place the chops in pan and cook for sometime in medium heat. Roll it from time to time so that it gets cooked evenly throughout.
