Hope your store is ready soon! I would love to order litti and chokha, which is soul food for a bihari like me.

Some other users also mentioned how Yogesh puzzles them with its variety and authenticity in taste. Their litti chokhas definitely cannot be compared to other sellers!
I tried it myself with nice smoky flavors and authentic flavor … loved it
