Litti Chokha is a traditional dish from Bihar. Traditionally, it was cooked on cow dung cakes which added the rustic flavour to this dish. Litti refers to whole wheat dough balls, where the stuffing is a spiced mix of roasted gram flour or sattu. Chokha can be made with roasted eggplant (baingan), boiled or roasted potatoes (aloo) and roasted tomatoes (tamatar). Both the litti and chokha are roasted or baked which makes this dish very healthy.
Litti Chokha represents the earthiness of Bihar. This rustic and delicious combo of Litti Chokha is a complete meal in itself.
