Chaula Bara Recipe

Chaula Bara Recipe

In all of Western Odisha, chaaul bara, also known as challa bara, is a well-known street snack. It has a crispy outside and a fluffy, soft interior. It pairs well with two varieties of specialty chutneys: Patalganta chutney (tomato chutney) and Tentel Jhol (Tentuli Jhola, or tamarind water). The combination of hot Baras dipped in tamarind water and tomato chutney is divine.

Here’s the mouthwatering Chaula Bara Recipe,

Ingredient for Chaula Bara Recipe

Regarding Chaula Bara:

  • Rice, parboiled: 2 cups
  • ½ a spoonful of urad dal
  • ¼ teaspoon of carom seeds
  • ½ teaspoon of cumin seeds
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3–4 chopped green chilies
  • 1- inch of chopped ginger
  • Diced coriander leaves: 2 teaspoons
  • Curry leaves: 2 chopped springs
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • Warm water
  • Add salt to taste.
  • Deep-frying oil

Procedure For Chaula Bara Recipe:

  1. In boiling water, wash and soak the rice and urad dal for six to seven hours, or overnight.
  2. Add a small amount of water and grind to a thick, smooth batter. Stir it for a while until the batter becomes light.
  3. Next, thoroughly mix in the chopped onion, cumin, carom, baking soda, salt, chopped green chili, ginger, coriander, and curry leaves.
  4. In the meantime, warm up enough oil in a heavy-based pan for deep-frying. When the oil is hot, delicately drop a spoonful of batter into it with care. Proceed in the same manner with the leftover batter.
  5. Continue to fry until the color turns golden. Cook the opposite side after flipping. After all of the Baras have turned a light golden color, remove them to absorbent paper to drain any remaining oil.

Regarding Tomato Chutney:

  • 2 medium tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 green chilies.
  • Ginger: ½ inch
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • Chopped leaves of coriander: 1 tablespoon

  1. Put all of the ingredients—chopped tomato, green chili, ginger, garlic, pudina leaves, and coriander leaves—into a blending jar and use one tablespoon of water to combine them into a smooth paste.
  2. As necessary, add more water to adjust the consistency. Next, thoroughly combine the red chili powder and salt.
  3. The tomato jam is prepared.

Regarding Tentuli Jhol :

  • 2 teaspoons of tamarind pulp
  • 2-3 chopped green chilies
  • Chopped garlic, 3-4 cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon of chili powder
  • Add salt to taste.

  • 2 tablespoons of refined oil
  • Panchphoran: 1 tablespoon of black cumin seeds, cumin, fenugreek, mustard, and Saunf.
  • Curry foliage: 1 stem
  • Water when needed
  • Chopped coriander leaves: 1 tablespoon

Procedure Tentuli Jhol:

  1. For fifteen minutes, soak the tamarind pulp in water. After mashing the pulp with water, take out any remaining pulp and seeds.
  2. Pour the water into a bowl and dilute it with a small amount of ordinary water as needed.
  3. Add the chopped garlic, ginger, and green chili to the tamarind water along with the sugar, salt, and red chili powder.
  4. Then, add two teaspoons of refined oil, curry leaves, and panchphoran to a hot pan. Finally, add this tadka to the mixture of tamarind and water. Top with chopped coriander leaves.
