Ingredients to make Chudkani

  • 1 handful black soybeans (Bhatt)
  • 4 to 5 buds of garlic (minced)
  • 2 tablespoons Atta (whole wheat flour)
  • A pinch each of jeera(cumin) haldi (turmeric) dhania powder
  • ½ teaspoon garam masala
  • 2 tablespoons of mustard oil or vegetable oil
  • A bunch of finely chopped coriander
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 to 2 and 1/2 glasses of water

How to make Chudkani

  1. Wash the soya beans in a colander.
  2. Heat oil in wok. Add cumin seeds. When they begin to crackle, add soya beans. Stir till the seeds begin to change colour and a lovely aroma emanates. Soya beans will begin to pop and crackle. Turn off the heat.
  3. Add minced garlic. Stir. The garlic will change colour.
  4. Add Atta. Turn the flame on, stir till the atta becomes pinkish brown.
  5. Add two glasses of water. Add salt, haldi, dhania and stir so that there are no lumps.
  6. Cook on a medium flame till the soya beans become soft and can be mashed between thumb and index finger.
  7. Water quantity will reduce considerably, gravy will be thick and black.
  8. Add garam masala and green coriander. Serve it hot!
My Tip: You may substitute atta with besan (chick pea flour) for a richer taste. You may also add rice paste (2 tbsp rice soaked and ground to a fine paste) while adding water and skip atta.
