Zunka is a maharashtrian side dish made with gramflour and onions, as a quick side dish to Rotis / Chapatis / Bhakri. Today, we see a quick take on Zunka with Potatoes (Aloo) & Bell Peppers (Shimla Mirch aka called Shimla in local language). This is :

  •  Gluten Free
  • Vegan
  • Satvik (No onion no garlic)
  • Quick (takes under 15 minutes)
  • Delicious to put together 

Ler’s see how to make this dish. It can be served with Rotis / Chapatis and also goes well with Varan Bhaath (Dal-Rice). My household help taught. me how to make this quick dish, and during the lockdown, we made this many times and this is now a family favourite.
