Dhuska ~ Jharkhand Special

Dhuska ~ Jharkhand Special Breakfast

     Dhuska is traditional recipe from Jharkand, India. This recipe is specially prepared during festival days, Which is very easy to prepare.  When I searched recipe for jharkhand state, this recipe caught my eyes because of its popularity in online world. Various links on internet stated it as signature recipe of Jharkhand state.  I adopted this recipe from here,  and the dish is pretty tasty and filling with tomato chutney.. Traditionally It is served with ghugni( Spicy chickpeas curry).

   According to Wikipedia,  Jharkhand, state of India, located in the northeastern part of the country. Jharkhand is bordered by the states of Bihar to the north, West Bengal to the east, Orissa to the south, Chhattisgarh to the west, and Uttar Pradesh to the northwest. Its capital is Ranchi.

       Jharkhand, one of India’s newest states, was carved out of the southern portion of Bihar in 2000. Statehood was the culmination of a long struggle carried on primarily by the Adivasis, or Scheduled Tribes.  The people of Jharkand have developed the habit of frying the food.. Most of their dishes are deep fried dishes and we are going to see of the dish below..

Dhuska ~ Jharkhand Special Breakfast

Cooking:

6. Heat oil in a frying pan. When oil is hot, pour the batter directly to the oil with help of laddle.
7. The mixture automatically spread and puffs up like poori. Deep fry both the sides till it changes it color. Transfer and place it on the paper towel to remove excess oil. Serve hot with tomato chutney or any spicy chutney.

Note:  I prefer adding ginger and hing, You can avoid and stick to original recipe.  Do not over fry your pooris, it will become more crispy. For soft poori/ dhuska, remove when it slightly changes it color.
