Poda Pitha is made with white lentils (Urad Dal) and rice batter. To this batter, jaggery and freshly grated coconut are added. The batter is fermented and then baked.
Traditionally, poda pitha is cooked on a slow flame on a chulha. It gets its unique taste from the caramelisation of the sugar. Poda Pitha is said to be the favourite food of Lord Jagannath.
Poda Pitha is a uniquely tasty, flavourful, sweet and salty dish that is too good to resist.
