  • 1 tbsp Ghee
  • 1 tsp Cumin jeera seeds
  • 4 Green chillies slit
  • 1 Onion sliced, fried
  • 1/4 tsp Garam masala
  • 1 tsp Mango powder amchur
  • 1/2 tsp Black pepper kali mirch powder
  • Salt to taste


  • Rub the split black gram with your hands to remove the skin. Drain.
  • Heat the ghee in a pan; add cumin seeds and green chillies. When they start spluttering, add black gram and salt; stir-fry for 4 - 5 minutes.
  • Pour 2 cups of water; cook on high heat till little water remains. Lower heat and simmer till the grains are cooked and the mixture is dry. Stir gently and occasionally so that the grains don't break and stick to the bottom of the pan.
  • Transfer to a bowl; garnish with fried onion, garam masala, mango powder, and black pepper powder. A dollop of butter or 1 tbsp of hot ghee can be added to enhance the flavour.
