I am hoping that this journey across the Indian states is keeping you all entertained as well as keeping your tummies from (g)rumbling! 

Jharkand is a relatively new state formed in 2000. It is primarily a tribal dominated state. And the cuisine there is very similar to the Bihari cuisine. 

Let us not waste too much time with idle talk, lets get ready to take a peek at a Jharkandi(?) snack which has been made multiple times at our place owing to its popularity. Apparently, Dhuska is a festival snack and is typically made during Durga Puja and Holi.

Take a bite while I hop over to the southern state of Karnataka. Join me there tomorrow for another snack!

Recipe Source - here
Ingredients - 

Chana Dal 1/2 cup
Rice 1/2 cup
Salt to taste
Green Chillies to taste 
Ginger to taste
Cumin seeds  1/4 tsp (I used powdered cumin)
Asafoetida 1 pinch
Oil to deep fry


Method Of Preparation -

Soak the rice and chana dal for about 6-8 hrs. (I soaked for 5 hrs)

Grind the rice and dal with green chilli, ginger and cumin seed into smooth paste.

Add salt to taste and mix well.

Heat oil in wok/kadai.

When the oil is hot enough, pour a ladle full of batter and let it fry on medium heat.

After it starts browning, flip it and fry on the other side.

Remove on to paper towels. Continue with the rest of the batter.

Serve hot with chutney of your choice.
