Ghugni- East India Snack

On the last day of this North East cuisine, I choose very popular snack i.e. Ghugni is an evening street snack in Eastern India especially in Bengal, Assam, Bihar, and Orissa. For this recipe, soak dried yellow peas or green peas overnight and cook into gravy with Bengali spices and serve with kurmura or onion bhajiya. Generally in our North India (Delhi) side, this snack is served with kulcha’s, and garnish with chopped tomatoes, onions and green chili. It’s all time fav of mine.
