This is not a cake! It's like a rich baked mawa dessert that just melts in your mouth. With no egg, no leavening agent, it's every vegetarian's dream! A very popular Oriya delicacy, Chenna Poda exceeded my expectation in every sense.
Odisha has a culinary tradition spanning centuries. Majority of the people from Odisha are non-vegetarians and fish forms an integral part of their traditional cuisine. Oriya dishes are rich and varied and rely on local ingredients. The main course in lunch includes one or more curries like Crab Kalia, Maccha Ghanta, Bhendi Bhaja, vegetables and pickles. People of Orissa are sweet tooth and sweet dishes form an indispensable part of their meal.
