The process of making Chaul Bara is quite simple, yet it requires a certain level of skill and patience. The rice flour and black gram are first soaked in water for a few hours and then ground to form a fine paste. This paste is then mixed with jaggery and other ingredients, such as cardamom powder and nutmeg powder, to give it a unique and delicious flavor.
