This is an awesome curry which is very easy to make and very healthy at the same time. Its main ingredient is dried peas (yellow/white/green) which is rich with protein. As most of the preparations of Orissa this is cooked with very less oil and spices. Ghugni is equally popular in other eastern states of India Bengal, Bihar and Assam. Ghugni is also served as a snack by itself giving it a more Indian â€˜chaatâ€™ flavor by garnishing it with finely chopped onion, coriander leaves and some chaat masala and other spices.
