How to make Chilka Roti Recipe (Jharkhand Style Rice and Lentil Roti)
To begin making Chilka Roti Recipe (Jharkhand Style Rice and Lentil Roti), wash and soak the rice and chana dal in water overnight.
In the morning, rinse it in water and grind it to a smooth paste using a mixer grinder with very little water.
The consistency should be thicker than the normal dosa batter.
Take the ground mix in a bowl, season with salt and whisk well to incorporate air into the mix. This will make the mixture airy and light to make softer crepes/rotis.
Heat a skillet on medium heat, grease it with a little bit of oil.
Pour a ladle full of the prepared rice and chana dal mix, spread it like a dosa, by making outward swirls with teh ladle.
Pour a teaspoon of oil around and let it cook for about 2 minutes on medium heat or till done.
Once the bottom is cooked, flip over and cook the other side for another 1-2 minutes or till done and take it out on a plate.
Likewise, prepare the rest of the chilka rotis with the remaining batter.
"I am an experimental cook by chance!" Yeah! Cooking to me has always been a form of stress buster. What started as a stress busting exercise post work, has now evolved to a much full time activity. I try to improvise the traditional recipes with easy to available ingredients at home. Thus, you will come across a lot of fusion in my cooking style. I try to include seasonal organic produce as much as possible in my cooking.
