I was introduced to Chevra Dunking by my crazy sisters-in-law. This tradition sends the family running into two opposite camps: those “For” and those “Vehemently against”. Until very recently, I stood in the “Vehemently against” camp. But masters of persuasion that my bhens are, they have convinced me & my kids that this is the way chevra should be eaten.
I’ve moved from the ‘Vehemently against’ to the middle of the room, a new camp called: “I’ll try anything once or if you pay me in gulaab jamun”.
How to Chevra Dunk
This is what you do: make a cup of sweet masala tea, add at least 1/3 of a cup of chevra to the tea, wait for it to bubble, then eat with a teaspoon! I couldn’t bring myself to add it to my tea and used a bowl instead. It was quite nice.
I immediately hear you say “Noooo, you can’t do that to chevra! Nooo, how can you do that to masala tea?” Yes, I felt that way too, but evidently you can!!! Try it!
I might be wrong, but I sense the start of a new Diwali craze, and if you like it, you heard it here first!

Chevra dunk sounds like an interesting alternative breakfast – like dunking rice crispies in tea.
Hi Johan, yes with more texture and flavour!
This brings back childhood memories “Chevra Dunk” is what we use to do every Diwali
Haha Kalpesh, it seems the madness runs in the family then, I thought it was just the bhens! Sal Mubarak Kalpeshbhai.
