Very popular breakfast recipe from the state of Jharkhand, a crispy yet puffed bread made with rice and lentils, flavored with green chilies, ginger, cumin seeds, fresh coriander, is dhuska recipe. It is a very interesting recipe. At times when I prepared potato curry and don’t want to make the regular pooris, I make Dhuska. As such also it is served with potato curry or kala chana curry or potato chana curry. It makes a great brunch recipe too.
