Churkwani

Funny name! Isn’t it! Actually it is a Garhwali dish made with black soybeans. This is my favorite  dish; I love the whole beans which are so yummy in the whole wheat aata curry. As all the other dishes from Garhwal, it is also is very simple with very few ingredients and very good taste.

Serves:4

Ingredients

3/4 cup black soybeans

4 tbsp whole wheat aata

1 tsp ginger-garlic paste

1 tsp coriander powder

1/2 tsp turmeric powder

1 tsp chili powder

salt to taste

1 tsp oil

1 tsp cumin seeds

5-6 cups water

coriander leaves to garnish

Method:

Heat oil in a kadahi.

Add cumin seeds and let them crackle.

Add the soybeans and saute for a while.

Cover and let them crackle on medium heat. Check and saute constantly otherwise you can burn them.

Meanwhile mix all the remaining ingredients and add water to make a thin paste.

When most of the soybeans are crackled, add the mixture.

Let it cook for 10 – 12 minutes. Adjust the seasoning and thickness of the curry according to your taste.

Turn off the heat. Garnish and serve with hot white rice.
