Er, Jungka sounds more Sikkim than Goa. I have not heard of that dish, and asked a few ethnic Goans. They don't know either so can you please send me the recipe?

Casuarina said...

@ Suchismita : My source of information regarding the Goanese origins of this dish is a well known cookbook by Leela Majumdar (the same) and Kamala Chattopadhyay,published by Ananda Publishers Pvt Ltd in Aug 1979 and titled quite simply 'Rannar Boi'. It was priced in those days at Rs 15.

Here's the recipe :


Bandhakopir Jungka

Ingredients:

Cabbage, 1 whole
Besan, half cup
Lemon Joice/Tamarind
Green Chilli, 4
Curry leaves / Coriander Leaves
Shredded Coconut, half
Whole mustard (shorshe) seeds, 1 and a half tsp
Salt
Oil, 2 serving spoons

Method:

Shred cabbage head very finely.

Keep besan dissolved in half a cup of water.

Heat oil, then add the mustard seeds, stir for 5 mins.

Add dissolved besan and curry leaves/coriander leaves.

Stir for a while. Then add 1 cup of water and boil for 15 mins.

When the water seems to have been absorbed, add salt, lemon juice/tamarind, shredded coconut, green chilli and cover.

Remove from gas after about 5 mins.

Reads much better than the awful menu at the office canteen where the only difference between chicken hariyali and chicken sofiyana is the name.
