Ghughni

This is one of the easiest recipes I have ever known. It's a very popular Bengali dish and can be enjoyed as a evening snack or even a full meal.


Ingredients -

  • 1cup - Dry Yellow peas
  • 1 small onion
  • Coriander
  • 1-2 tbsp Jeera
  • 1-2 Dry red chilli
  • 1 small Tomato
  • Garam masala
  • Imli chutney
  • Turmeric
  • Chilli powder
  • Salt to taste
  • Dry powder
For the dry powder - 
  • Roast Jeera and red chilli on a pan on a low flame. Low flame is necessary else it burns out really quickly.
  • Once it starts giving a nice aroma, remove it from flame.
  • Using a grinder, make a fine powder.
Recipe - 
  • Soak the yellow peas for 7-8 hours in water.
  • Boil it in cooker, most of the times 1-2 whistles is just enough else the peas get really mashed.
  • Remove a little amount in a bowl and mash it with a spoon. This will be used to thicken the gravy later.
  • Heat oil in a pan, add jeera , chopped onions. When the onions turn light brown , add a small tomato. Then add the boiled yellow peas, turmeric, pinch of garam masala, chilli powder and salt to taste.
  • Add water per consistency you would like. At this point you can add the mashed yellow peas mixture into the curry.
  • Add the dry powder now and let it simmer for 5-10 mins.
  • When you serve, add chopped red onions, coriander, pinch of the dry powder and imli chutney.
  • Serve it hot. With parathas it can be a really quick dinner meal.
Enjoy!!!!
