Traditional Bihari Litti Chokha Recipe

Litti is a snack food found in India’s Bihar  and Nepalese state of Madhesh. It consists of wheat and sattu combined along with spiced and stuffed into maida balls and deep fried in ghee or baked in the oven.

Although Litti very often confused with Baati from Rajasthan, it is a completely different dish in terms of taste, texture and preparation. It may be eaten with yogurt, baigan bharta, alu bharta, and papad. The litti are traditionally baked over a cow-dung fire, but you can either deep fry the littis or bake it in the oven.

Serve the Litti Chokha along with Aloo Choka and Baingan (Choka) Bharta, Yogurt & Pickled Green Chilies for lunch or dinner.
