Thanks for giving a detailed view on this popular Odia dish. For the first time I've taken it in my childhood and till now I'm having this delicious food in a regular basis. There are two variants of suji kakara pithas are normally available, pone is with sugar another one is without sugar. I've lots of non-Odiya friends and when I take this pitha to my hostel, everyone demands for more. Now you can guess how much tasty this pitha is if you have not tasted before. Not only this one, there are many other sweet dishes that are available to tangle the taste buds of the visitors from other states or countries.
