How to make Baked Litti Chokha Canapes/Katoris

  1. Preheat the oven at grill option @ 200 degrees Celsius.
  2. How to Make Litti Dough: Take flour, soda, salt and ghee in a bowl. Mix well to incorporate the ghee. It will look like a crumble. Crush the carom seeds between your palms and add to this mixture.
  3. Now, add very little water at a time to knead this into medium soft flour. Remember it should be softer than Puri flour but harder than roti flour. Cover this with a damp kitchen towel and keep aside too rest.
  4. Now make the Filling: In a bowl take all the ingredients and mix well.
  5. How to make Litti balls: Take the litti dough which we had kept aside. Knead it roughly to mix the salt together and to smoothen the dough a bit. Now roll the dough length wise and cut out equal portions to make balls.
  6. Take one portion in your hands. Roll into a ball. Now, with the ball in one hand, Start making a cavity into the ball by pressing with the other hand.
  7. Now, put 1 tbsp. of filling into the cavity and close the opening by pressing all sides together.
  8. Press nicely and roll between your hands again. Make the rest of the balls with filling just like this. Cover with a cloth and keep aside.
  9. Making the Chokha: Heat mustard oil in pan. Add cumin seeds and ginger. Let them splutter. Add peeled boiled and mashed potatoes, tomatoes and Brinjal. Keep the flame on high.
  10. Add salt, red chilli powder and cook till nicely mixed. Remember all the three ingredients are cooked and need not be on flame for a very long time. Cook for 3-4 minutes and remove from flame.
  11. At this point add some coriander leaves for colour.
  12. Baking the Litti Katoris: Take your muffin pan. Take the reverse side. Grease all the toppers. Now, take one ball at a time, keep on one topper and press with your palms or fingers.
  13. We need to cover the toppers with the balls, like a cap. Press in the middle to evenly distribute the flour on all sides.Now, with a folk, make impressions on the Katoris .
  14. The edge is facing down right now and you need to press with the folk to make a nice design. Once you have covered all the tops of the muffin tray, put this in the oven to cook.
  15. Increase the temp to 250 degrees Celsius and grill these till nice brown. This took 20 minutes in my oven.
  16. Once the Katoris are nicely golden brown, take them out and grease them /brush them while hot with a little Desi ghee or clarified butter. Let them cool and then assemble.
  17. How to Assemble the Litti Katoris: Fill the Katoris with chokha. Then put 1 tsp. green mint coriander green chilli pesto and garnish with coriander leaves. You may serve them hot as well.

My Tip:

Put the dry saunf based mango pickle masala for best taste.
