Bihari Cuisine is one of those cuisines I have heard and read a lot about. I had a Bihari colleague who was also a good cook. We used to enjoy her homemade dishes she used to get to work. I have mentioned a lot about her and our conversions on food and the many dishes she had shared with me. When we first talked about Sattu and the magic behind it, that's when this Sattu ka Paratha came into picture and whole importance of Sattu came out.
I had picked up dishes like Thekua, some ideas for this Simple Bihari Thali, be it Ghugni or Bihari Khichdi or Dhuska, it was talking about it. One of the main thing I understood from our talks have been that they are fine with many sukhi type of dishes. She used to make some Aloo Gobi Sukhi that were so lip smacking with rotis.
After waiting for so many years, I finally made Litti Chokha at home and totally loved it. I remember making Dal Pitha and enjoyed it much. There is a version of Chana dal made as a side dish for roti or rice.
Today's featured recipe is the Bihari Chana Dal Puri
