Get A Taste Of Jharkhand With This Dhuska Recipe

If you thought Jharkhand is only famous for Dhoni, you haven’t met Dhuska, the state’s delicacy

Annabelle D’Costa

In Jharkhand, celebrations are synonymous with Dhuska, a traditional deep fried snack. Also known as Dhooska in some parts of the state, this yummy snack is quite a hit on the streets and usually served alongside some mouth-watering kala channa or dried green pea ghugni. However, spicy aloo or chutney too make for a great accompaniment to dhuska’s basic yet distinct taste. Typically prepared by grinding rice and lentil, other ingredients such as onions, green chilli, coriander and/or turmeric powder also find their way into the preparations helping improve the flavour and taste. After all, when it comes to food, less is always more.

Waking up to a plate of hot dhuskas on a lazy morning can help spice up the rest of the day. However, these pancakes can also be enjoyed as an evening time snack. Weight-watchers can dive into these savoury treats by skipping the deep fry process and pan prying them instead.

Whether or not you’re a pro in the kitchen, dhuska doesn’t require any special preparations and can be mastered by anyone and everyone.
