A couple of weeks ago I wrote about Besan – a hidden Indian delicacy using gram flour. Here is another hidden gem using gram flour.
Just for a moment picture yourself as a typical Indian farmer. You wake up early in the morning – probably it’s around 5am. It’s a bit chilly at this point so you wrap your dark shawl around your shoulders. Perhaps a wool scarf around your ears – tied in a knot at the nape at your neck. Before you head out for your long physical day working your fields under the tropical Indian sun, you have to make your lunch. The lunch you’ll have sitting under the shade of a tree with the other local famers. Where you will trade news, gossip and tips. You start up the coal oven and decide to make yourself some veggies. It has to be something that can stay unrefrigerated at least till lunch.. something that you can put in a tiffin and not worry about it spilling out while you ride your bike over the bumpy dirt roads. And it should go well with the leftover Bhakri. What do you make?
You make the Capsicum Besan Zhunka.
