Monday again and this week’s 204 #Foodiemonday bloghop theme is #NashtaTime suggested by Priya Iyer who blog at The world through my eyes.
Visit her space for many delicious traditional recipes. I have already tried many of her recipes.

If you don’t have udad dal or you don’t like then you can also make it with moong dal or yellow lentil. Follow the same process. Puri also remain crispy when cool so its perfect for your tiffin or lunch box. Make aloo or potato curry to serve with puri but you can also serve it with any pickle or achar or serve as a snack with tea or coffee. This Kachori can be also made with stuffing. Stuffing with udad dal can be made and stuff in whole wheat flour dough like this hinger kochuri.

Dhuli udad dal or skinned black lentil – 1/2 cup

Ginger – 1 inch piece

Green chilli – 2 – 3 or to taste

Souf or fennel seeds – 2 teaspoon

Whole wheat flour or atta – 2 cup

According to Wikipedia Jharkhand (lit. “Bushland” or The land of forest) is a state in eastern India, carved out of the southern part of Bihar on 15 November 2000. The state shares its border with the states of Bihar to the north, Uttar Pradesh to the northwest, Chhattisgarh to the west, Odisha to the south and West Bengal to the east.
The city of Ranchi is its capital and Dumka its sub capital.
Jharkhandis have a cuisine in which spices are rarely used and rice is the staple diet. They prepare different dishes of rice, different types of Rotis, Litti Chokha, Panipuri (Gupchup), Pittha, Dhuska, Dudhauri, kera-dudhauri and Jhalmudh.

Dhuska is a famous dish of Jharkhand cooked with ground rice and pulses and served with either aaloo dum or mutton curry; kera-dudhauri is a famous dish prepared with milk, rice, ghee and gur. In many parts of Jharkhand including Panch Pargana area (Bundu, Rahe, Sonahatu, Silli, Angara, Arki and Tamar Blocks of Ranchi & Khunti districts) a special food item “Charpa” is prepared by frying mashed rice mixed with spicy vegetable preparations; hence the name follows viz. Sembi Charpa, Egg Charpa and many more depending upon the ingredient vegetable source.
