Chunkay is to add heated oil, usually infused with garlic and/or other spies, a dish (e.g. dhal or meat ) as opposed to cooking the dish in the oil. If you chunkay with garlic, the garlic must turn golden to deep brown before adding it to the dish. Chunkay'ing imparts a rich and delicious smoky flavor to the food if done correctly.
