Dhanbad enjoys Dhuska as a popular traditional dish, relishing it for breakfast or as an evening snack.

Litti Chokha:

 

Litti Chokha is a classic dish that originates from Bihar but has gained immense popularity in Dhanbad as well. It consists of roasted wheat dough balls stuffed with a mixture of sattu (gram flour), spices, and herbs. These littis are traditionally baked over a coal fire until they turn golden brown and are served with chokha. Chokha is a side dish made from roasted and mashed eggplant, tomatoes, and potatoes. The smoky flavour and the combination of spicy chokha with the savoury littis make this dish a must-try.

Sattu Paratha:

 

Another delightful delicacy that showcases the versatility of sattu, a roasted gram flour commonly used in Dhanbad’s cuisine, is Sattu Paratha. To make these parathas, they stuff a mixture of sattu, spices, and herbs into whole wheat dough and cook it on a griddle until golden and crisp. They serve it with a dollop of ghee (clarified butter) and a side of pickles or curd, making these parathas a fulfilling and flavorful meal.

Kala Jamun:

 

For those with a sweet tooth, Kala Jamun tempts as a sinful indulgence. You make these deep-fried dumplings from khoya (reduced milk) and soak them in sugar syrup until they turn dark brown, hence the name “kala” (meaning black) jamun. The syrup’s sweetness combines with the soft and spongy texture of the jamuns, creating an irresistible dessert. You should not miss this delightful treat, whether you enjoy it hot or chilled.
