This Matar Ghugni gets me pretty nostalgic. Back in the days of our childhood, when there was no much stuff available to munch on, we had this like NamakPara, Ghugni.
Kids these days love the processed chips and other namkeens to binge on. So, it is a good idea to learn to prepare stuff likes the Matar Ghugni so that you can give it to your kids.
It’s way better to have things like these than those seal pack processed food that’s being highly advertised on TV.
Below is the step by step process to prepare this Matar Ghugni at home. Make them for yourself and especially the kids. 🙂
