The thought of making chokolya struck my mind when I was pondering over my first main dish for poluck party. This chokolya used to be dinnertime options at my childhood days. This doesn't need any side-dish since it is soupy! Wheat flour is kneaded and rolled to individual circles. Each circle is cut into various diamond shapes and cooked over onion-tomato base. At my in-law's residence, she used to make rice flour dough, which is torn and shaped into tiny roundels before adding to gravy base.
A popular variant called 'kolyass ka chokolya' where mutton chunks are added into usual preparation is known. Also vegetarian version using finely chopped palak/other spinach forms are also seen. The authentic chokolya is an very spicy one, tempered like biryani style. (However, here I added lesser spices because I wanted my kid to consume) And because of its spicyness, coconut paste/powder is added in the end in order to cool the body.
