Litti Chokha (roasted Flour Balls With Mashed Potato)

Litti chokha is a typical uttarpradesh and bihar recipe. It is basically wheat flour balls which are roasted traditionally over “ chulha’ or ‘ angithi’ and is served with mashed potatoes. Interestingly the potatoes were also roasted in the firewood. In modern times however due to non availability of firewood litties are prepared either on gas stove or oven and potatoes are boiled.
