Gavar Phalli Angara

Gavar Phalli Angara (Smoked Cluster Beans)

Gavar Phalli Angara (Smoked Cluster Beans) is a dish with smoky flavor. Fuming takes this simple dish to another level.

This is a very typical Rajasthani method of preparing food. In Rajasthan they call this method as dhooni and the dish is known as Gavar phalli ki bhujji. I have seen my grandmother and my mother giving angara to many dishes which I will be sharing in due course of time. I have already shared one such recipe Kanji Vada.
