Chilka Roti Recipe is famous dish from the state of Jharkhand made using Rice and Chana dal. It is a nutritious breakfast recipe loaded with the right amount of carbs and proteins. 


  • 1-1/2 cups Rice , soaked overnight
  • 3/4 cup Chana dal (Bengal Gram Dal) , soaked overnight
  • Cooking oil , for making the rotis
  • Salt , to taste


  1. To begin making Chilka Roti Recipe (Jharkhand Style Rice and Lentil Roti), wash and soak the rice and chana dal in water overnight.

  2. In the morning, rinse it in water and grind it to a smooth paste using a mixer grinder with very little water.

  3. The consistency should be thicker than the normal dosa batter.

  4. Take the ground mix in a bowl, season with salt and whisk well to incorporate air into the mix. This will make the mixture airy and light to make softer crepes/rotis.

  5. Heat a skillet on medium heat, grease it with a little bit of oil.

  6. Pour a ladle full of the prepared rice and chana dal mix, spread it like a dosa, by making outward swirls with teh ladle.

  7. Pour a teaspoon of oil around and let it cook for about 2 minutes on medium heat or till done.

  8. Once the bottom is cooked, flip over and cook the other side for another 1-2 minutes or till done and take it out on a plate.

  9. Likewise, prepare the rest of the chilka rotis with the remaining batter.

  10. Serve the Chilka Roti Recipe (Jharkhand Style Rice and Lentil Roti) along with Lahsun Ki Chutney.
