Fried Litti and Chokha
The way to make authentic  Litti and Chokha is very unique and different where Litti is baked or roasted over cow dung cake which in known as (Goitha) or (Gobar Upla)  in the local languages or in coal. This cuisine is famous in Bihar, Jharkhnd, parts of Eastern Utter Pradesh aswell as Nepelese state of Madhesh.
But here i'm sharing the recipe of Fried Litti and Chokha. All process is similar and simple but here we fry our Litti in place of roasting or baking  it on coal or cow dung cake. It is not possible to get cow dung cake or coal easily in any market so i thought to make it convenient and simple for the people who love Litti and Chokha, so that they can easily prepare it at home.
