Mahaprasad, the food that is offered to the gods at the Jagannath temple, Puri represents authentic Odia cuisine. A wide variety of rice, pulses, and vegetables are cooked in a very interesting way. The ingredients are mixed together and steamed in earthen pots stacked on top of one another. Even the spices are not fried separately. The villages around the temple generally follow the same recipes. 
Odia cuisine calls for plenty lot of vegetables. They are included in dals, fish, and meat; and the dish gets its name according to the spices used rather than what vegetables are used. When an item is cooked with mustard paste it is Besara or Rai; with fennel and black pepper it becomes Mahura; with ginger, coriander and cumin seeds it is Ghanta; and when no ground spices are used, it is Santula. Coconut is liberally used.
Odias eat a lot of sweets called Peetha. Almost all of them are steamed or baked. Some are fried by just greasing the pan. Only a few are deep fried.  Often Peethas become the main dish in a meal. 
The ingredients used, as well as the method of cooking makes Odia food very healthy and tasty.
