Dubka is a traditional Kumaoni recipe made from the locally grown rare legume, Bhatt. Bhatt is a variety of soya bean, black in colour. Black soya bean is rich in phytonutrients, antioxidants, iron, manganese copper, amino acids and Vitamin K. It is a very rich source of protein. It has over 35 percent protein by weight. Dubka is made from Bhatt soaked overnight, ground coarsely in sil batta, cooked in an iron wok and tempered with Jamboo (dried herb used in Himalayan region) It is jamboo that gives Dubka its unique taste and flavour. Dubka is served with ghee smeared madua rotis (ragi chapatti), rice, raita and salad.
