Zukka or Jhunka is a delicious vegetarian dish made with besan (chickpea flour) and spices. It is a specialty of Maharashtra, Goa and northern Karnataka, where it is also known as pithala or pithale. Zunka can be made as a wet curry or a dry paste, depending on the amount of water added. It is flavored with ginger, green chillies, garlic, onions, and coriander and tempered with mustard seeds and curry leaves. Zunka is best served hot with bhakri (flatbread made from millet or sorghum), chapati, paratha or roti. It is a simple and quick recipe that can be whipped up in minutes for a satisfying meal. This is a quick and easy recipe suitable for sudden guest visitors, and school-going children.
Note: Zunka tends to harden as it cools down, so enjoy it while it is fresh and hot.
