Chilka Roti

Post No.99

The new addition to my Signature dishes of  India is a famous dish from the state of Jharkand – Chilka Roti.  It is a popular roti in Jharkhand prepared  using rice and chana dal. Jharkand was once a part of Bihar and the cuisine are similar. This rice and lentil crepe tastes similar to south Indian adai dosa


1 cup rice

½ cup chana dal

Salt to taste

Oil as required


Wash and soak the rice and chana dal in water for three hours

Grind it to a smooth paste . consistency should be thicker than the normal dosa batter

Add salt and mix well. Heat a dosa  pan  and pour a ladle full of the batter and spread it like a dosa.

Drizzle a teaspoon of oil and cook for about 2 minutes on medium heat.

Then flip over and cook the other side for 2 minutes

Serve this chilka roti with  coriander chutney or garlic chutney
