Information about Odisha

Looking for information about Odisha? You have come to the right place, since here you can get an in-depth look into many aspects of Odisha, including food, nightlife, shopping, culture, locals and much, much more. Read on to know more.

While visiting any place, it is imperative to know about the cuisine of that place, lest you find yourself surrounded by a food group that you do not entirely like. Well, in Odisha there is enough to please any palate, be it of those who love fish, or those who love meat or those who are vegetarians. The main food in Odisha, and probably the most popular ones are related to fish and molluscs, from both the sea and rivers. Some of the most popular dishes are:

Chungdi Malai: A rich and creamy concoction that combines fresh prawns and coconut milk for a smooth and delicious curry.

Macha Tarkari: A fish curry that uses both sea fish and freshwater fish. The curry consists of onions, tomatoes, potatoes and spices.

Macha Ghanta: A dry curry made of deep fried fish head, combined with vegetables and spices. It is a very popular dish, served to the Goddess Durga on Dussehra.

Chhena Poda: A sort of cheesecake that is baked on an open fire for hours, so that it caramelises and becomes sweet. It is served to Lord Jagannath in Puri on special occasions.

Kukuda Tarkari: A simple chicken curry that is used making the freshest of ingredients, and farm-raised chicken.

Kankada Jhola: A delicious crab curry that is both spicy and sublime at the same time. It is sometimes made using coconut milk.

Chhena Gaja: Another Odisha famous food is the chenna gaja, a sweet dish made from semolina and cottage cheese, which is soaked in a heavenly syrup flavored with cardamoms.

The main cuisine of Odisha, as you can see, is a little bit heavy on the sweet side. In short, there are several sweet dishes that Odisha is known for than there are savory dishes, so make sure to try all of them. You can also try Odisha street food, which is a combination of sweet as well as savory offerings at small stalls and generic restaurants, which do not cost an arm and a leg, but offer delicious, hygienic fare. Well, that’s enough about food, let's take a look at some other interesting facts about Odisha, such as the nightlife in Odisha. There are several nightclubs, discotheques and bars in the more urban cities of this state, such as Bhubaneswar and Cuttack.

Hope all of this Odisha state information will help you make a well-balanced decision in order to enjoy your trip to the hilt.

    Gurgaon

    Shalinee's 4 days trip to Odisha

    The trip was a great experience. Our trip was planned for 4 days, where we tavelled to Puri, Konark, Chilka and Bhubaneshwar. Along with us, we also had elderly people. The experience was really nice and relaxing. Our travel agent helped us at every step of the way, whether it is choosing a great ho
    tel, or suggesting us jain food outlets to eat, or planning the trip in a way we could enjoy. The hotel itself was excellent in itself. The food preparation was phenomenal, and coupled with great hospitality from the staff, we had wonderful time at the locality. The only qualm we had was the hotel's location, which was quite far from the temple, and we could not go to the temple aside from planned times. However, the beach the hotel had was divine, with a quiet atmosphere and a beautiful sunrise. The driver was another person who made the trip great. He drove very comfortably, which helped us a lot especially as we had elderly with us. He helped us everywhere in our trip. Overall, Inde D Voyage helped us make our trip the wonderful experience that it was.

    Pradeep's 7 days trip to Odisha

    Very great experience with TravelTriangle and its tour agent Mr. Shibashish (Inde D Voyage). I took the Cab service from TravelTriangle and they connected me to the Mr. Shibashish (Inde D Voyage). He is very nice and understanding person. I asked him for the drivers having good behavior and non drin
    king habits and he provided the best drivers Mr. Santosh and Mr. Sanatan Mohanty. They were also nice human beings and having familiar behavior during the trip and were fully awared of my trip area i.s. Bhubaneswar, Cuttack, Konark, Puri, Gopalpur, Chandragiri etc. Next time I will also book the hotels through TravelTriangle for Odisha trip. Thank You TravelTriangle and Mr. Shibasish.

    Agkhandekar Cet

    Visakhapatnam

    Agkhandekar's 7 days trip to Odisha

    I am not a very organised traveller sort of person, I usually prefer going with the flow, let the road surprise you kinda person and hate fixing itinerary before starting the travel itself. But my husband on the other hand, is totally opposite and more organised. So, for our second wedding anniversa
    ry we decided to do a week's worth road trip to Odisha. As we were to take our own vehicle, we wished more to explore rather than just to travel. We came to know about Travel Triangle through a friend, so we approached them and came in contact with Shibashish(agent). We conveyed him a blur idea of what we were looking for and he came to the rescue!!! He suggested some extra-ordibary home stays and unusual travel destination worth visiting, most importantly considering our wish to explore, he addressed us a whole list of all the tribal villages on our route, which are known for authentic odiya paintings, handloom art, original brass articles and the list is never ending. As we travelled, we came to know about the rich art culture and heritage value of Odisha and many lesser known rather unknown facts that we overlook as a tourist. These guys made our anniversary trip so special and enriching. People everywhere were genuine and friendly. It was a memorable trip which had all the ingredients of a perfect vacation and travel. The win of travel triangle was that they were able to understand our expectations and make a itenary suiting perfectly to those!! In the end, we were left with a feeling of shortage of time and a wish to come back again with even more time in hand! Our best memory is funny and eyeopening kinda one. So after visiting some of the best home stays and resorts, we came to Mangalajodi, it was almost our last stoppage. It was a simple village, hotel was regular and neat. But we were overwhelmed by the previous stays so weren't clear about the point of visiting the place. As we met the Hotel manager, he informed that the place is a home of 216 different species of migratory birds. We were not very much into bird watching and photography still we decided to give it a try. So early morning we were to start our 3 hour boating ride. As soon as we reached Chilika lake and stepped on the boat, it was a whole different world. Such a blissful beauty and heavenly sight of chilika wetlands where hundreds of birds were roaming all over the lake. It was the most unforgettable part of the journey!!!

    Motwanihetal

    Puri

    Motwanihetal's 3 days trip to Odisha

    It was a wonderful trip. We didn't have to worry about missing anything on the itinerary as our travel agent was always there to help us. Even in testing times like Covid, we managed to have a carefree trip. Shibashis was always willing to help us and we didn't feel we were in a new unknown place a
    ll by ourselves. Orissa is truly India's best kept secret. Thanks Travel Triangle for making it a smooth trip. Since I am a bird watcher, my best memory of Orissa is Chilika lake where we were outnumbered by birds by thousands. It was a paradise indeed. Wish could have stayed there longer.
