Khar

Khar can be identified as an ethnic dish of Assam.My mother says that it cleanses the stomach.I donot know to what extent it is true.

In my village people make it out of banana skin(Aathiya kol or bhim kol)or black gram plant(mati mahor ga-gos).The skin or the plant is first dried in sun and then burnt .The ashes are then put in water.The water is filtered and this water is used for cooking khar.Typical khar dishes are mati mahor khar,omita khar,masor muror khar.
