Nadia Chithau Pitha with Tomato Khatta from Odisha/Orissa

By Priya Srinivasan - I Camp in My Kitchen - Saturday, September 12, 2015

Today we are travelling to Odisha /Orissa for breakfast. We are already a big fan of tomato chuda and nadiya pachadi from this state. So, while looking for breakfast I came across this pitha made using coconut and rice @ +Srivalli Jetti space. 
I was worried about how it will taste,  since i contains nothing other than rice and coconut, I was wrong, it tasted good when served hot and paired with proper side.  You can either make dalma or any spicy vegetable curry. I paired it with tangy and sweet tomato khatta/Chutney. 

Source +Srivalli Jetti 
1 cup rice
1 cup freshly grated coconut
salt to taste
oil for making the pitha's
  • Soak rice for 2-3 hours. Drain the excess water, add the grated coconut and grind it to a fine batter. The Batter should be thin. Let the batter sit for 30 minutes. 
  • Heat a pan/tava , pour a laddle of batter on the hot tava in circular motion. do not make like regular dosa, it has to be done like rava dosa. 
  • Cover and cook in a slow flame. Do not flip the pitha. When the top portion of the pitha is cooked, take the cover off, and serve it hot along with  a spicy curry. 

Sending this to Come,join us for breakfast, happening @ +srivalli jetti space.
