Poda Pitha (ପୋଡ ପିଠା)


  • 300gm Rice (ଚାଉଳ)
  • 150gm black gram - without outer skin (ଚୋପା ଛଡା ବିରି)
  • 1 cup finely scrubbed coconut (ନଡିଆ କୋରା)
  • 10-15 small pieces of thin coconut slices (ନଡିଆ ଖଣ୍ଡ)
  • 200gm sugar / jaggery  (ଚିନି / ଗୁଡ)
  • 50gm chopped ginger (ଅଦା)
  • ½ bowl of cashew nut – broken into pieces ( କାଜୁ ଖଣ୍ଡ)
  • 1 table spoon ghee or refined oil (ଘିଅ)
  • ½ teaspoon salt (ଲୁଣ)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder (ସୋଢା)
  • Soak the rice and black gram in water in separate bowls for about 4 hours. 
  • Wash them thoroughly. 
  • Put the black gram with water in the grinder and form a fine batter. 
  • Do the same with rice too but keep in mind that the batter should be coarse and not as fine as the batter of black gram. 
  • Mix both the batters and add coconut slices, grated coconut, chopped ginger, salt, sugar, cashew nuts and baking powder. 
  • Mix all the ingredients well and keep it covered for about 2 hours for self-fermentation. Pre-heat the pressure cooker. 
  • Form a thin layer of oil on all the inner surface of the cooker. 
  • Now pour the mixed batter into the cooker and close the lid (without mounting the whistle-weight). 
  • Place the pressure cooker in simmer flame for about one hour. 
  • Now your hot poda pitha is ready. 
  • When the cooker comes to normal temperature take out the pitha carefully, and cut it into desired shapes and serve.
