Searching for Oriya recipes made me realize how little I know about the cuisine from this costal state of India!Swapna was kind enough to provide links to some sites featuring authentic Oriya recipes, which were a great help.
Thank you, Swapna for hosting RCI:Oriya .I have learnt a lot about Oriya Cuisine!
Today I made Alu Posta (Potato in poppy seed curry) and Khajur Khatta– chutney like side dish with Tomato and Dates.
For the Alu Posta, I did not deep fry the potatoes as required in the original recipe. (I have been indulging in a lot of deep fried eats for the past week and my stomach can’t take it anymore.)
I loved Alu Posta with the potatoes soaked in the poppy flavour.
The Khajur Khatta was an instant hit with my little one, who otherwise is not very fond of sweet taste!
Alu Posta recipe
2 medium sized potato peeled and cubed
2 tbsp spoon of poppy seeds (Khuskhus) soaked in warm water for 15-20 minutes
