Introduction

Littis soaked with pure desi ghee teamed up with baingan and aloo ka chokha helps us remember the ordinary Bihari culinary experience. Litti-Chokha is an uncommon delicacy from Bihar that is popular wherever across India. The flavors speak to Bihar’s naturalness, and you can discover it at road slows down and even in fine-feast cafés. Lets look at a little history where this much-cherished territorial dish developed. 

What exactly is Litti Chokha? 

Puja Sahu, the owner of PotBelly Cafe that serves Bihari food in New Delhi, lets us know, “Litti is a mixture ball loaded down with sattu and simmered until cooked. Afterward, it’s dunked into natural desi ghee to improve the taste. Chokha is a mix of baingan (eggplant), potatoes, tomatoes, and many flavors. Chokha isn’t cooked like a standard sabzi; rather, it is a simmered vegetable blend. A few people like cooking Litti Chokha with mustard oil to get that impactful flavor.” 





Acclaimed for its provincial taste, Litti Chokha is a Bihari delicacy where the Litti is made of entire wheat flour, loaded down with sattu (powder made out of dark chana), spices and flavors. It’s prepared over coal or cow compost cakes and afterward at long last sprinkled with desi ghee. 

Dry adaptations of Litti are likewise accessible. Chokha is a barbecued eggplant with chilies, cumin powder onion, coriander tomato, and and turmeric powder. The best thing about Litti Chokha is that on all sides, both the dishes are broiled and barbecued. There is no singing associated with it, off-kilter, less the desi ghee.

Here is the recipe for litti chokha for our curious Indian food lovers.

Align the balls on the baking tray and put them into the preheated oven. Bake them until they change color, and don't forget to flip the sides to cook them from both sides. Set your range on broil for 2-3 minutes and flip the balls' sides to get them all crispy.

After preparing the litti, it's time to make our chokha to complete the dish. Clean up the brinjal or eggplant and slit cut it from the center. Place the vegetable onto a foil sheet on a baking tray with tomatoes on top. Roast the vegetables in broil mode in the oven or at a high temperature.
