  • Chura Ghugni
    Cook time 30 mins

    Chura ghugni is a popular breakfast or evening snack in Bihar. Chura/chivda/poha (beaten rice) is one of the staple food in Bihar and its combo with ghugni i.e. black gram curry is loved by everyone. Every household has their own style of making ghugni. Some like it as curry some like it dry. I am sharing a dry preparation of ghugni which my family loves. The type of chura I have used here is a speciality from Bihar, called Katarni chura. The paddy, from which this katarni chura is made, is smaller than the normal paddy and has a very sweet aroma. It tastes sweet too and is my absolute favourite! Bhagalpur district in Bihar is known for its Katarni chura and this is one thing I buy in kilos every time I visit India.
