Litti chokha or Batti chokha or Bhauri is one of the most popular dishes of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh. The baked whole wheat balls are stuffed with flavorful sattu or roasted gram flour filling and I am sure you are going to fall in love with it from the first bite itself. Sattu also called Makuni or Roasted Gram Flour is the main ingredient of Bihari Litti Recipe. It is very versatile as you can make sattu paratha, sattu kachori and even sattu sharbat. The traditional style of cooking litti is baking it in traditional fuel, i.e. dried Cow Dung (local name : goitha) but since it’s not possible to follow that process because of our city life. So in this post, I will share Litti Chokha Recipe and how to make litti in the microwave and on the gas tandoor.
