Matar- BhujaComments : 12 Posted in : Uncategorized on by : Sonali
Bhuja- people outside bihar would rarely know what does it mean? But I m sure if u r a bihari or have been there even for a short visit, there r chances that u were served this as an evening snack. We have its different form there, chura ka bhuja, makai ka bhuja , chana ka bhuja etc. but the most famous & easily made at home is chura ka bhuja, my father’s favourite evening snack. So, today I m here with another delicacy from bihar.
U will need: For Matar, 250gm green peas, 1 tbspn mustard oil, 1 large onion finely chopped, ½ tspn turmeric powder, salt to taste.
For Bhuja, 250 gm chidwa (or chura as called in Bihar), 1 tbspn ghee, salt to taste.
First of all, heat kadai properly. Add ghee. Add chidwa to heated ghee & keep stirring continuously. When chidwa turns slightly brown, add salt & switch off the stove. Bhuja is ready.
Keep aside the bhuja in a plate. Again heat the kadai. Add oil. Add onion. When onion turns slightly red, add matar ( green peas). After a while add turmeric powder & salt. Cook with lid on. In approx. 5 minutes u r done. Stir well after 2 minutes.
You r ready with unusual yummy platter of evening snack.
Tip of the Day: fry bhuja on medium flame & dnt stop stirring. keep low flame while preparing matar.
