Wheat flour 

wheat flour meaning in hindi is “गेहूं का आटा”.
We all know much about this, “गेहूं का आटा”  mostly we eat chapati of this. It is considered as the most healthy ingredient for our body. 
We make a lot of food on the daily basis like “aloo paratha”, “sattu Paratha”, “pyaj paratha”, “chilla”, etc. There is a lot of dishes we make with it. 

How wheat flour is prepared? 

First wheat is washed properly and kept under the sun. When it is dried, it is then put in the flour machine and then from wheat , wheat flour is prepared. And from that we make a dish. 


Pitha is a most famous “Bihari” dish. It is made with rice flour and filled with “chana daal”. It is steamed for about 20-25 minutes. Nowdays, not only in Bihar the people of Bihar in every states they make this dish. Everyone loves to eat. It is served with chutney which is spicy because it is full of green chilli , ginger and garlic. 
To make “Bihari Pitha” , first chana daal is soaked in water for about 4-5 hours. And then with garlic and green chilli it is grinded to make a thik paste. Salt, turmeric is mixed. The fillings is prepared. Then the water is boiled and then rice flour is mixed to it. And then dough is prepared. In Bihari language it is called ” charhana“. After this, a small ball of dough is taken, rolled in a shape of small puri and then fillings is added to it and then it is closed in a semi circular shape. At the last it is dipped in the boiling water and cooked for about half an hour. 
The pitha is ready. 

Nowdays, many of us eat this by frying in a oil with curry leaves and Mustard seeds. And also deep frying it. 
This is the new way of eating pitha. We also fry it with soya sauce, tomato sauce and chilli sauces. It becomes very delicious. 
We can call it Indian-chinese fusion dish.

Serving method 

While serving crispy pitha, 
Serve it with spicy green chilli chutney. Take 5-6 green chilli, 3-4 pieces of garlic, 1 tea spoon of oil and grind it for about 15-30 second  The chutney is prepared. 
If you are serving to kids, then serve with tomato ketchup and green chilli sauce. Also, we can do one thing, mix green chilli and tomato ketchup and then serve. Mixing these two sauces gives a very nice taste. 


  • Make sure the dough is soft. 
  • When the pitha is steamed, wait till it get dry. Other wise, when you put in a pan directly then it will stick to the pan.
