गव्हाचा चीक / Gavhacha Chik

Spiced Snack of Whole Wheat Extract

Gavhacha Chik is a time-consuming but rewarding snack that is made by slowly cooking the white extract from wheat grain with some common kitchen spices. Water-soaked wheat grains are ground into a paste and the white extract is separated from the fermented grain (used for making traditional crisps called kurdai) with a cotton cloth filter. The extract is covered and placed in a vessel overnight so the thick chik settles at the bottom. Carom seeds, asafoetida and some salt are boiled in a little water and the chik is slowly stirred in, while ensuring that all lumps are broken down. When the chik turns transparent, serve it hot with a dollop of clarified butter.
