Odisha Celebrates Pakhala Divas amidst Corona Scare

Bhubaneswar (Pramit Pramathes): People of Odisha celebrated ‘Pakhala Dibasa’ amid Corona outbreak today by eating different varieties of Pakhalas. The universal pakhala day is observed in a bid to promote Odia food worldwide.

Pakhala, a traditional Odia dish, is prepared by mixing rice with water and keeping it overnight. After 7–8 hours the rice starts to get fermented. This fermented, cooked rice is known as Pakhala. The Baghara pakhala variant is usually topped with cumin seeds, fried onions and mint leaves. It is mostly served with roasted vegetables like potato, brinjal, badi, saga bhaja and fried fish.

Pakhala is mostly eaten during summer season as the healthy and tasty food not only beats the heat in summer but is great for the digestive system.

Earlier, the Odia traditional food was considered to be the food of the poor and underprivileged. However, hotels and restaurants including the star hotels have now included it in their menu and commercialized it to attract global audience, who love to taste Oriental cuisine.
