Fried Litti Recipe With Video/ Easy Fried Litti Recipe

Hello Everyone!

Hope you all are doing great ! Well, today I am going to share a world famous dish from Bihar. Yes, it is none other than litti recipe. Sattu or roasted black gram is the main ingredient which is used in making filling in wheat dough.  Readymade sattu is available at many places but somehow in any case if you don’t get it  or If you don’t know how to make sattu at home then you can see the video relating to it. The link is also given at the end of this video. Today I am going to share fried litti recipe which is very much easy to make at home. It is  tasty, yummy, easy to make and generally liked by everyone.  Traditionally litti is prepared by roasting it in the clay stove. It takes very much time to make and it is not easy to make with that style. But you can easily make litti by this style. If you are not willing to deep fry it then make litti by this method and bake it in a oven. Litti is generally served with chokha but you can serve this litti with any sauce or chutney which is easily available at your home. So just chill and enjoy the taste of world famous bihari cuisine😀 !
