How to prepare Gopalkala
First of all, soak the chewda in water for 1-2 minutes, so that it becomes soft. If the bangle is thick enough, it should be soaked for 5 minutes. When the chewda becomes soft, drain the water from it and keep it aside in a separate vessel. Now we’ll heat ghee in a pan. Then we will put mustard seeds in it. After that, add cumin, green chilies, chopped ginger, and stir. Turn off the heat. Put the mixture over the chewda. Add yogurt, finely chopped cucumber, grated coconut, and salt. Run it lightly. Check the salt and, if less, add more. Finally, serve it by sprinkling chopped coriander over it.
