How to make Chakuli Pitha, Aloo Bhaja & Ghuguni - A Traditional Odia Breakfast

  1. How to make Chakuli Pitha:
  2. Soak white lentil and rice in water overnight. Then filter out the extra water and grind it to make a fine paste. For grinding, add water which covers the lentil and rice.
  3. Keep the mixture aside for 4 to 5 hours for fermentation. Add salt and water to the paste for making the batter a little thin. Make sure the batter does not get too watery.
  4. This is the usual method of preparing the Chakuli Pitha, But I like to have it fresh so I just keep the batter covered for 30 minutes after grinding and then use it.
  5. Mix the batter well and place a pan on the stove. Heat a non stick tawa on a medium flame.
  6. When the pan gets heated, add 1/2 tea spoon oil and spread it all over the pan.
  7. Take a small bowl of batter and spread it all over the pan in circular shape. After a while check the lower side of the pitha. Once the lower side turns brownish, flip it to other side.
  8. When the pancake (pitha) is cooked well from both the sides, switch off the stove. Repeat the procedure for all the pithas (pancakes).
  9. Serve hot with Aloo Bhaja, Ghuguni and Jaggery on sides.
  10. How to make Ghuguni:
  11. Soak the white peas overnight or minimum 3 to 4 hours.
  12. Peel off the potatoes and cut into pieces.
  13. Pressure cook the soaked Yellow Peas and Potatoes for 2-3 whistles with a pinch of turmeric powder and 1 tsp salt. Open the lid of the Pressure cooker after it is cooled down and the gas has been released.
  14. Heat a Pan with oil. Add the cumin seeds to the heated oil and when it starts to splutter, add the Chopped onions, green chillies and saute till golden brown.
  15. Add the Ginger-Garlic Paste and saute till the raw smell goes away. Add the chopped tomatoes and saute it till the tomatoes are mushy and the oil is released.
  16. Add turmeric powder, Cumin Powder, Coriander Powder, Garam Masala, Red Chili Powder and saute it.
  17. Now add the boiled white peas and potatoes to it. Mash some of the potatoes which will add a thickness to the gravy and makes it of great taste as potato goes along with every cooking stuff.
  18. Add salt according to the taste. Now add some water and let it simmer for 2-3 minutes with the lid. Turn off the gas and garnish with coriander leaves.
  19. How to make Aloo Bhaja:
  20. In a Pan, Heat Oil, Add the panch Phutan, Red Chilli. Let the Seeds splutter, as the Chilli turns Smoking Red, add Turmeric Powder and sauté.
  21. Add the Potato Pieces Fry till the Potatoes on High Flame for about 30 Seconds,Cover & Cook on Low Flame till Tender.
  22. Add Salt & Stir for about a Minute.
  23. Serve Fresh & Hot with Thin Chakuli pithas.
