How To Make Litti Chokha, Bihari Litti Chokha, Litti Choka Recipe in hindi

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.

Bihari Litti Chokha Recipe:

This post is very special because of few reasons.

a.) This is the most popular dish of Uttar Pradesh (my native place) and Bihar (husband’s native place), so it becomes the favorite of both of us. You can also easily spot small eateries road side in UP and Bihar serving authentic Litti Choka with roasted tomato chutney.

b.) This dish makes me nostalgic about the childhood days or the family gathering when the family together use to cook this dish. Each family member was assigned some or the other task, be it of sattu stuffing preparation, Litti making, Chokha preparation or Baking Litti.

c.) I have made detailed recipe videos of how to make bihari litti chokha step by step on a gas tandoor, litti in microwave convection oven and baingan ka choka.

Chana Dal Fara /Gojha / Peetha – Steamed lentil stuffed dumplings

Chana Dal Fara

Chana Dal Fara is another popular dish of UP and Bihar. I posted the Kala Chana Ghugni recipe earlier and hope to post more regional cuisine recipes. Fara is also called gojha or peetha in different parts of the state. It is a gujiya shaped steamed lentil stuffed dumplings. There are two variations of fara or gojha, one is made with wheat flour and another one with rice flour. At my place, we prefer to make the wheat flour fara. We use soaked chana dal mixed with some spices as stuffing and stuff it in poori sized fara shells.

I like to have it with green coriander chutney along with a cup of tea. Sponginess is the main thing to make perfect dhoklas. Therefore, you should air the mixture well by mixing it before adding the fruit salt. If you try out this recipe do share your feedback or pics with me.
