WHEAT GUGRI


Gugri means sundal, usali.  Recently, one of my neighbour, a Marwadi Jain gave me a plate of Wheat and Black chana prepared and said that it is called Gugri.  When I looked at the dish, I felt the same like our sundal.  Then I searched on the net and came to know that it is one and the same.  Only thing that she had prepared  bit mushy.

Then I thought of making the same only with the wheat as we always prepare the sundal with black chana, kabuli chana, horse gram, chana dal etc.
