    Good God! This is something I had only dreamt of!!!
    Being a single, living alone thousand miles away from home and family, I know what I miss the most – dalmaa, saaga-badi, ghaanta, aloo-potola rasa… the list would go on…
    All I did till date was to call my Mama (mother), keep chatting over the phone for a recipe and trying my hand at cooking some special oriya dish.

    I am very glad to see a website that has typical oriya recipes. Now I believe I will be a better cook very soon 🙂

  6. Pratap Ch. Bhanja Says:

    Thanks for coming out this. Wish, this would be a great window to the whole world for finest Oriya cuisine. But, one thing definitely required (as said by another reader) – provide PDF files in Oriya Scripts. You may also consider publishing the Oriya version page along side the English version page, which has to be default at any terminal (ref. And to spread out to a larger audience (Indians would surely love to try out Oriya foods) please think of publishing in Hindi version, as Hindi is most spoken language in our country.

  7. Oriyakitchen Team Says:

    Dear Pratap Ch. Bhanja,

    Your suggestions are indeed towards making oDiA Dishes more widerspread and popular. We are incorporating the PDF output of the recipes very soon. Towards publishing in oDiA we are working right now. And regarding Hindi it will take some to implement as we have to consider few other things for this.

    Dhanyabad !
