- 200 grams of soya bean - 2 pieces of ginger - 2 red chili whole - 2 potatoes - 2 green leaf garlic - Half cup oil - 1 tablespoon of coriander powder - 1 tablespoon of cumin powder - 1 tablespoon of red chili powder - 2 tablespoons of chopped onion - Pinch of fenugreek seed - Pinch of thyme seed


1. Cut the Potato, Green onion, tomato and gundruk in small pieces (if they are big). 2. Heat the pan add oil in it. 3. When oil is hot put the soya bean in and let it fry. 4. When the soya bean starts to break take it out (try to keep the excess oil in the pan because the other things are going to be cooked in the same oil). 5. Add masaura and let it fry too (keep medium heat). 6. When masaura turns golden brown take it out of the pan. 7. Add gundruk into the oil and take it out (gundruk is fried for a short period of time because it gets burnt easily – popular proverb “gundruk cannot be cooked”). 8. Add Fenugreek seed, thyme seed and whole red chili in the pan. 9. Put potato, turmeric, and salt in the pan and let it fry. 10. When the potato looks golden brown add gundruk Soya bean and masaura to it each at a time. 11. Add cumin powder, coriander powder and red chili powder to it. 12. Add a glass of water (usually in Nepal we add the water from washing rice called chaulani - चौलानी) 13. Put on the lid and let it boil for some time. 14. Gundruk has to have soup so if you see the water is evaporated then add more water. 15. Serve hot with rice or roti!
