I along with some of my foodie friends went to have some Odia food cooked at home-chef Tapti Pattnaik’s place, and we had a wonderful time there. She was welcoming and served us a delicious home-cooked Odia meal, and that made our weekend a perfect one.
The menu was:
Chenna Panna - A refreshing welcome drink, a milk-based drink with grated coconut, banana, and chenna
Macha Besara Bhaaja - Fish fry with mustard paste (we call it Machh Bhaja with Kasundi in Bengali)
Pithau Dia Cantala Bhaaja - Contolo fried in rice batter (it's called Kaankrol in Bengali)
Dalma - Dal cooked with vegetables
Dahi Baigana - Curd with brinjal, I liked the mildly spiced flavour in it
Maansa Jholo - Homestyle mutton curry
Bandhakobi Chingudi Ghanto - Cabbage curry with tiger prawns
Khiri - Traditional rice kheer with cashew and raisins
So if you feel like trying some authentic home-cooked food, then check out Authenticook's website, choose your preferences there, and enjoy a purely homestyle experience.
