Odia cuisine is not just about Pakhala and Mansa Tarkari. Here is Odia Poi Ghanta for your veg days.
It is plain as a pikestaff that the mention of Odia cuisine brings with it the thoughts of Pakhala Machha Bhaja and Puri Pheni. Odia cuisine is often linked with delicious nonveg and tropical dishes. But, there are a plethora of vegetarian dishes that are as delicious and decadent as the nonveg and tropical dishes of Odisha. Enriched with local veggies and spices, Odia veg dishes are absolute favourites in many Odia households. One such vegetarian dish is the Odia Poi Ghanta. Made with Malabar Spinach, some nutritious veggies and spices, Poi Ghanta is delicious and aromatic with varied textures going through every single bite.
