Litti Chokha Recipe Bihari Style


  1. To make the litti, in a mixing bowl, combine the bajra flour, whole wheat flour, salt, and ajwain seeds. Mix well.
  2. Add the ghee and mix until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  3. Add water, a little at a time, and mix to form a dough. The dough should be soft and pliable, but not too sticky.
  4. Divide the dough into small balls.
  5. On a lightly floured surface, roll out each dough ball into a thin circle.
  6. Place about 1 tablespoon of the stuffing mixture in the center of the dough circle.
  7. Fold the dough over the filling to form a semi-circle and press the edges to seal.
  8. Heat a griddle or tawa over medium heat. Place the litti on the griddle and cook for about 5-7 minutes on each side, or until it is cooked through and has browned spots on both sides.
  9. To make the chokha, heat a pan over medium heat. Add the mustard seeds and cumin seeds. Once the seeds start to crackle, add the asafoetida.
  10. Add the onions and green chili (if using) and sauté for a few minutes, or until the onions are translucent.
  11. Add the tomatoes and sauté for another 2-3 minutes, or until the tomatoes are soft.
