7. Arisa Pitha
Pithas (sweets made with rice or other flours) are an integral part of Oriya cuisine. They are usually prepared at home during various festivals. However, there is one delicious pitha that is available in stores and sweet shops - Arisa Pitha. This is a sweet rice-flour dumpling, which is fried and dusted with sesame seeds. It is very crisp on the outside and has a soft core. There are layers of nuanced flavors in it, such as jaggery, coconut, and saunf.
