Podo-pitha (white Lentil , Rice And Coconut Cake)
Podo-pitha is a traditional Oriya dessert recipe having white lentil, rice and coconut as its main ingredients. This recipe is slightly burnt from one side, hence known as podo (burnt) pitha (cake) in Oriya. This recipe is a traditional variety of cake. This pitha (cake) is one of the many delicious Oriya pithas that we prepare during festivals. I learnt to prepare this recipe from my sister. This dish is one of my favorites as it reflects the dynamism created by the interplay of its three main elements- lentil, rice and coconut. We can serve this dish at breakfast, lunch and dinner as a dessert or take as an afternoon snack.
