What is Chatang?

Chatang is a millet soup, from Beijing cuisine and Tianjin cuisine, also popular in eastern states of India, specially Tripura. It is flavoured with sesame seeds and peppercorns. Jowar flour is used to make chatang recipe. Jowar flour is roasted slightly and boiled water is added to complete the soup. It is a gluten free soup recipe and can be served as a starter. I couldn’t find any vegetarian breakfast recipe from this state, which can be prepared in my kitchen with the available ingredients, therefore I have put this soup in the breakfast category for my breakfast recipes from different states of India collection.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
