Litti Chokha Recipe | Breakfast Care

I haven't grown up eating this rustic dish but I make it best. Litti Chokha is a dish that is very simple yet super delicious. It is a complete meal originating from Bihar and popular in many regions of India, such as Jharkhand and parts of Eastern Uttar Pradesh.
