Recipe of Littis with Chokha


  1. To make the dough, combine the flour, ghee, and salt in a bowl. Gradually add water and knead until the dough is soft and smooth. Cover the dough and let it rest for 30 minutes.
  2. To make the stuffing, combine the sattu, ginger, green chilies, cilantro, lemon juice, salt, cumin seeds, carom seeds, mustard oil, and pickle masala in a bowl. Mix well.
  3. To make the chokha, peel and mash the eggplant. Combine the mashed eggplant with the tomatoes, potato, onion, green chilies, cilantro, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and mustard oil in a bowl. Mix well.
  4. Preheat a tawa or griddle over medium heat. Divide the dough into equal-sized balls. Flatten each ball into a disc and stuff it with a tablespoon of the sattu mixture. Seal the edges of the dough and shape the littis into balls again.
  5. Cook the littis on the tawa or griddle for 10-12 minutes per side, or until they are golden brown and cooked through.
  6. Serve the littis hot with the chokha.
