Ghugni is one of the most beloved of Bengali snacks. It is a dish of curried whole-yellow peas or motor (matar) dal. A very similar dish is also known as Chotpoti in Bangladesh. A good ghugni is one in which the motor dal is well-cooked, but remains whole. The key is to not overboil the dal. The consistency also needs be just right—slurpy but never watery. With just about 180 kcal per serving, you'd be hard-pressed to find an evening snack more filling, healthy AND delicious than this.
Serve it piping hot this Bijoya with a garnish of bhaja masala, onions, green chillies and tamarind pulp.
