  4. Dear AOF
    I was waiting for this pitha recipe whole day, what is the Oriya name , just cant remember, this is not enduri, for sure.
    What is rice rawa ? Is it Khuda? or some kind of rice powder?
    I shall make all pithas soon, I have some recipes from Mugdha's blog.
    Have a great day

  9. Yummmm! Looks so heavenly! Love the look of it, am sure tastes divine too :)

  10. @ Ushnish - Hope you are having a gr8 raja...this is not enduri. For Enduri pitha, the batter is steamed inside turmeric leaves..

    Rice rawa is a kind of broken rice ( similar to suji ), it gives that lovely texture to the idlis which you can only get in South India. I have always known this pitha as 'Pura Idli'...not sure if it has any other name as well!!

  11. Thank you frnds for the lovely comments!!!!
