Ghugni is an evening snack in Eastern India (Assam, Bengal, Bihar, Odisha). Black gram (kala chana), dried yellow peas, or dried white peas are cooked with gravy[1] in the traditional eastern Indian style. It is then served with puffed rice[2] (kurmura) and at times with hot onion pakoda or bhajiya. It is also served with poori. Some versions include meat, such as lamb.[1] It is a common and affordable food in Kolkata.[1] Mangsher ghugni has been described as a "Kolkata trademark".[1]
