Vegetarian foods form a significant part of the food habits in Odisha. The Odia food heritage owes its origin to the various types of prasad, ie., cooked food offered to the deities in the famous Jagannath Temple of Puri. Such offerings are strictly vegetarian in nature and even the vegetables which made their entry into the state of Odisha in the last one or two centuries, such as brinjal, tomato and potato etc. do not find a place in the daily ‘prasad’ cooked in the grand kitchen of the temple. The OdIa vegetarian food is however evolving slowly and embracing changes over the period. We present here the recipe of vegetarian dishes which may be treated as the traditional foods of Odisha.
