The cuisine of Orissa is as simple as its inhabitants. The food pattern is almost similar to that of its neighbouring states of Bihar and West Bengal due to their proximity and similar geographical conditions.
However ask any Oriya about the most delicious dish of the state and he will keep mum. It is because there is such a plethora to choose from. There are a number of rituals and celebrations when delicacies are prepared from the freshly harvested paddy. It begins as soon as the rains stop with Nuakhai celebrations when several types of cakes are prepared and are shared with friends and relatives.
