Hey friends,
It is Holi today. Before i start talking,I am wishing you and your family a very happy,Healthy and prosperous holi. Also My friends in Brussels, hope you are safe. Holi is our festival of colors and you all must be ready to celebrate it with your friends and family.Celebration is Started  actually and i am here to share my town tradition with you.
The recipe i am going to share today is may be forgetten recipe and it is also possible that you may not even heard about this.
Ghughari is nothing but just boiled whole wheat and black chick peas serve with coconut pieces. Ghughari is sweeter in taste because jaggery is added to give sweetness.

Indians, You all know that It is two days celebration and first day is known as Holika Dahan which is today and tomorrow will be Rangwali holi.Holika Dahan is celebrated by burning holika(the devil).
Friends, Traditionally This recipe is prepared under the flame holika.Large Clay pot is sealed with Dough and Clay lid.They add water and Soaked whole wheat into this clay pot and sealed them. Set this pot under that place where holika is going to burn. This ghughari is cooked by the flame of holika.
The very next day On Rangwali Holi day.The head of the society or the group who conducted holika dahan in particular area will distribute this ghughari as a Prasad among the residents.

I just try to recreate the version of ghughari in my kitchen just to live my childhood memories again.
Remember guys, This recipe is not meant for taste. I am just Sharing my tradition with you.
This recipe has a plain taste so majority of people doesn't like this version of ghughari. But Here in pune, I miss all those little things so i tried to create this at home..
Have a fabulous Holi friends.
