Ambila (vegetables With Sweet And Sour Soup)
Ambila is a very traditional Oriya recipe which is prepared on festivals. This particular recipe is prepared during Margasira gurubar Laxmi Puja (Worship of Goddess Laxmi) and other rituals. Every married woman from southern part of Orissa sure knows the preparation of this item. I usually prepare this sweet and sour recipe during Laxmi Puja. I learnt to prepare this dish from my mother (I have learnt a number of recipes from her). I like to eat this recipe during Laxmi puja days because of its special taste. We can serve this dish with rice at lunch or dinner.
