More About Odisha Cuisine

The cuisine of Odisha also known as the Odia Cuisine is a medley of different items and ingredients. The food scene in Odisha has influences from the food of North India, West Bengal, and Assam. Rice is a staple in most Odia platters and yogurt forms a major part of their cuisine. Odia cuisine has less oil and spices but that doesn’t take away the tempting flavors of the dishes. Odisha khichdi is one of the most famous dishes here. It is the main bhog to Lord Jagannath at their Puri Temple. Macha Ghanta forms another important part of Odisha cuisine.
