How to make Ghugni- A bong Snack

  1. Pressure cook the peas with a little water and salt on medium heat, till 3 whistles blow.
  2. Heat oil in a pan, then add the bay leaf, cumin seeds and add the onions. Saute a little bit till the onions turn pink. Then add ginger-garlic paste and stir. Next add the potatoes and saute along with the masala.
  3. Sprinkle some water to the pan to prevent the ginger-garlic paste from burning. Now add the turmeric, cumin, red chili powder. Fry for few seconds till the oil separates from the mixture.
  4. Add the chopped tomatoes, sprinkle some water and cover the pan with a lid. Lower the heat to cook the tomatoes till they become soft and squishy. After 2 minutes open the lid, add the peas and cook the masala for 1 more minute.
  5. After 5 minutes of boiling, sprinkle some garam masala powder on the curry and give a nice stir.
  6. Garnish with chopped coconut, coriander leaves and green chillies, the tamarind water and good sprinkle of the roasted cumin and dry red chilli powder.

My Tip:

Tamarind water gives that extra hit to this dish and instantly takes you to your childhood memories.
