Litti-Chokha… the earthy taste of Bihar

You all must have heard of how fond Biharis are of litti-choka. And now, it is becoming famous in nearby states of Bihar as well, due to its growing fondness and yummy taste.

I myself being a Bihari want to share the recipe of this ‘earthy’ dish. Not only it tastes amazing, but you will also equally enjoy making it.

These are perfect for those chilly winter nights. Complement it with some chicken curry (for non-vegetarians), chokha (for vegetarians), cocktails and your best of friends (:
