Note: The original Dhuska recipe of Jharkhand is a testament to the region’s resourcefulness and ability to create culinary delights with simple ingredients. Traditionally, Dhuska is made solely from rice, chana dal, urad dal, and salt, reflecting the limitations of rural areas. Despite its simplicity, this unadorned version of Dhuska offers a unique and distinct flavor that has stood the test of time.

If you’re seeking a taste of authentic Jharkhand cuisine, opt for the traditional Dhuska recipe, eliminating the additional ingredients mentioned earlier. The purity of flavors derived from the three core ingredients will undoubtedly captivate your taste buds.

Step 4:
How to cook Dhuska
Dhuska fry in hot oil

To prepare the perfectly crispy dhuska, heat oil in a pan or kadhai over medium heat. Once the oil is hot enough, grab a ladle and scoop up a portion of the batter. Gently drop the batter into the hot oil, avoiding spreading it around. As the dhuska settles into the oil, use the ladle to carefully baste the top with hot oil. This technique ensures even cooking and prevents the dhuska from absorbing too much oil.

After a few minutes, when the dhuska is lightly browned on one side, use the ladle to gently flip it over. Continue to fry the dhuska on the other side until it is golden brown and crispy.


To fluff up the dhuska, gently press it down with the ladle while it is frying. This will help to release the air bubbles that are trapped inside the dhuska
Dhuska takes a little longer to cook than other fritters because it contains raw lentils. Be sure to cook it through until it is firm and cooked through.

Once the dhuska is cooked, remove it from the oil and drain it on a paper towel-lined plate.

Hey well done! Your delicious Dhuska is ready.

Now serve it with channa curry or alu ki sabzi. Or you can also eat it with your fevorite chutney.
