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.

Kala Chana Ghugni or Kala Chana Curry Recipe

Kala Chana Ghugni

Black chickpeas curry or kala chana masala is very popular in UP and Bihar by the name of “ghugni” yes, kale chana ki ghugni. Chana ghugni makes me nostalgic and reminds me of those special Sunday breakfasts when this spicy chana ghugni was served with piping hot puris. It even reminds of those small eateries located in the Varanasi’s lanes where they use to serve it with crispy kachoris. The “kachori galli” is certainly the “must visit” place when in Varanasi.
The best part about this curry is that, black chickpeas are “powerhouse of nutrients”, a good source of protein and fibers for the vegetarians. It is a spicy and flavorful curry where the masala envelops the black chickpeas. There are two versions of it which are usually cooked dry and gravy depending upon with what you plan to serve it . I am sharing the curry version here which goes very well with parathas, puris or rice and I will share the dry version too in coming days. I prefer not to tamper with the original recipe because nothing tastes like the authentic “chana ghugni”.

I would love to hear how you make this curry at your place and do share your feedback or suggestions in the comment section and yes, don’t forget to show your love if you liked the recipe.
