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.



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


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.


Rapunzel Magic

We went to see movie!! Yes we went to see movie with the girls for the first time. It was the Disney movie Tangled As my DH said we are going to see the movie I got a little confused if we should take the girls to the movie or not; I said to him that may be the girls are not prepared for that experience, but till then the girls got the news! “We are going to see cartoon on a big TV!” And it wast waste of time to tell them that the plan was canceled, so we went to see movie.

Achu was sitting on my lap and Aaku was on her papa’s. Both were excited about the movie but when the lights were turned off  and the movie started the little girl on my lap murmured “want to go susu” WHAT?? I asked as if I heard it incorrect, and she said it again! “What happened?” asked DH. As I told him the matter Aaku overheard it and she also asked to go out. First I felt that I should take them out to toilet, but then I remembered their old habit; whenever they want to get away from the scene they want to go to toilet. I thought maybe this is the reason they are saying so, hence I said to both that when the movie will finish then only we can go out to the toilet. Aaku said ok and started watching the movie, she was enjoying it. “It is the cute little baby princess with the king and queen”, I kept talking to Achu to let her be comfortable about what is going on and if she can see it, if she is enjoying it… She only nodded her head in yes that she is liking the princess and started watching  the movie. She looked a little frightened but was watching keenly. She kept her silence throughout the movie while Aaku laughed , squealed loud and enjoyed every moment.

Ask them now about the movie and they will say, “Uncle ne queen ke bal tod diye” {“Uncle broke the hair of the queen“} and when we say “tode nahin cut kiye” {he didn’t broke them but cut them} they both say no “tod diye” {no he broke them} 🙂


As I want to cook 10 Garhwali (they are from the Garhwal in Uttaranchal) dishes, I thought to start with the simplest and so cooked Bhatwani today. Although almost all of the Garhwali dishes; that I know; are simple to cook, I felt to make Bhatwani as my DH loves it. All you need for this recipe is black soybean.

Here is the recipe for you all:

Serves: 4


1 cup soaked black soybean. (soak about 3/4 cup soy overnight)

2 tbsp rice flour. (traditionally they soak about 2 spoons rice separately )

1 green chili (can use more according to the taste)

3-4 cloves garlic

1/2 tsp turmeric powder

1 tsp coriander powder

1 tbsp oil

1 tsp mustard seeds

salt to taste


Grind soaked soy, chili and garlic in to a paste. Add all the other ingredients to the paste with about 1 liter water.

Heat oil in a Kadhai or pan, add mustard seeds. When the seeds crackle add the dal mix to the oil. Let it come to a boil and after that cook for about 10 minutes on medium heat. Adjust seasoning and thickness of gravy.

Serve hot with Roti or Chawal.
