Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup - chickpea flour (garbanzo bean flour or besan)
  • 1 - green pepper, finely diced
  • 1 - onion, finely diced
  • 1 bunch - scallions or spring onions (about 6), both green and white parts finely diced
  • 1 tsp - red chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp - turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp - mustard seeds
  • A generous pinch of asafoetida (hing)
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/4 cup - chopped garlic greens or chopped coriander

How to Make Zunka

  • Roast the chickpea flour lightly, stirring, for about 5 minutes on medium-low heat until it smells fragrant.
  • Spray oil in a skillet. Add asafoetida and mustard seeds. When the seeds sputter, add the onion. Saute until the onion turns translucent but before it starts to colour.
  • Add the chilli powder, turmeric, spring onions and chopped green peppers. Saute for a few minutes until the vegetables start to soften.
  • Add the chickpea flour and salt and stir in. Add 1 cup of water.
  • Stir well, cover and cook on medium-low heat for about 7-8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until all the water has been absorbed.
  • Turn off heat. Garnish with the garlic greens or coriander leaves. Serve hot with bhakri.
