Black soya or Bhatt is a staple of most Kumaoni households. Traditionally cooked in a cast iron vessel, adding to its dark colour, this dish celebrates slow cooking. Bhatt also has protein and iron, and helps in reducing cholestrol. Make it in our traditional method or make a Mexican rice. Add it to salads or make delicous vegan cutlets.
