Jhunka or Zunka is the popular vegetarian dish of Maharashtra, Goa, and North Karnataka. The main ingrediant of zunka is chickpea flour aka besan. Zunka is also known as pithla, or pithle. It's dry version known as pitla or pitta.

Serve hot with bhakari or chapati or paratha or even with bread. Note: when the dish cools becomes a solid substance. So it's better to eat zunka soon when hot.
