Hey Cynthia... I am obviously late on this post... stumbled upon this from Meeta's blog.
I happen to be from Bihar and immediatey realised it was our own dish from back home. We call it chokha and it is an essential side dish with that unmistakable Bihari cuisine called Litti. Mostly, potato and eggplant are used for chokha but of course any other veggie can be substituted.
It is

Your saltfish choka looks similar to what we call in the Virgin Islands, 'pickup saltfish'. It's a fish salad that is normally eaten with saltine crackers. It's also a bit more oily than your saltfish choka. :-)

Heather - I do hope that I have been able to answer your question in the email.

2008-01-26T00:51:00.000-04:00

As usual, you have taught me so much. I loved learning about choka(s?), which I had never heard of before. That's so interesting that it applies to the way of making the dish, rather than the actual ingredients. Thanks for a great post and article.



I love what you've done to the potato chokha!:-)

Hello Cynthia,
I would always wonder why I'm so late (last) in reading all your posts, just realised I had forgotten to blogroll you..now each time you post something i shall be notified ASAP :)
Thats quite a parade of chokhas...always amazed to see regional similarities in countries so far away geographically...lovely post as usual :)

That's a new to me food. I know of choka but to me its a long form Japanese poem.

Cynthia, I think it was a mistake to come here hungry. Your pics are sooooo tempting! You know, I'd never heard of choka before, but my mother makes an Indian dish with shredded shark meat that seems similar in concept. Will post that next time I make it! Thanks for the info.

I don't know if I mentioned it before, but your new blog design is wonderful! And I had never heard of a choka before. There is so much to learn! That's great that you adopted a new food blogger too. I'll have to stop by there! ; )

2008-01-24T14:15:00.000-04:00

I have heard of "choka" before, but not as a food related word. "Choka" is also a Japanese poetry form, related to haiku.

You know, Ive never made a choka, I remember my mom making something like what youve described, but I was too busy to be bothered at the time. Please expect an email from me for some recipes, I really want to try to make at least one. You seriously have some of the best food photos on the net!
