Odia Badi Chura








My Odia Friends are going to laugh at this post. It is so simple to make that even a 10 year old kid can make this in a jiffy. We all grew up having Badi or Badi Chura. Badi or Wadi is made with soaked , spiced and ground Urad Dal. It is then dried and stored in air tight containers. Generally, the ladies of the home make it in big batches so they can be consumed throughout the year. Later they are fried and consumed as it is. Sometimes added to different curry dishes or made to a powder , spiced and is a must item during the summer season. 

I was in mood for some real Odia Food Today. I give you a glimpse of the normal odia thali. We generally have food in steel trays which have various compartment to hold the various items prepared. These trays come in various size and shapes. So , when I am in mood of authentic oriya food, I get them out from the pantry. The only thing missing is a green leafy fry. Else, the Sunday Tray mostly looks like the pictures I have posted here. You replace with Prawns with Fish or Chicken or Mutton.

What You Need:
10 to 12 Badis 
3 tsp oil
1 onion chopped roughly
3 to 4 garlic cloved
Green chili roughly chopped
Salt to taste
Steps To Make:
Fry the Badis in oil
Put everything in a blend and pulse for 2 to 3 seconds.
You badi chura is ready. Sprinkle over rice and enjoy your meal.
