Odisha Food Pop-Up in Bangalore by Home-chef SaiPriya

I showcased Odia delicacies at the Odisha Food Pop-up in Bangalore at Four Seasons Bangalore. This Pop-up was for two days where I cooked an array of Odia dishes for two days.

A food pop-up is a temporary culinary experience that offers unique and often experimental dishes in unconventional locations. These ephemeral eateries provide a platform for chefs and home-chefs to showcase their creativity. It gives a chance to create memorable dining experiences.

I was born and brought up in a small town called Balasore in Odisha. I was always a curious child when it comes to food.  My mother is my first guru and the kitchen is our bonding place. While growing up , I learnt many such culinary wisdom from her in Odia cuisine .

I moved to Bangalore in the year of 2007. A paucity of Odia eateries in the city made me take up the task of making space for it. Eventually my love for cooking turned me into a home-chef. Its true happiness to cook and share homemade meals with others.

I have cooked for private events , parties and have been doing Odia food pop-ups since 2012. Here is an article about me that was published on New Indian Express.

Also I got the chance to cook a five-course meal for the exclusive¬† #DineWithRocky with the country’s beloved epicurean expert Rocky Mohan.

There was Dalma Shorba. Dalma is a traditional and beloved dish in Odia cuisine. It’s a delightful and nutritious preparation known for its simplicity and unique flavor. Dalma is essentially a one-pot meal featuring lentils and vegetables.

Mudhi Mansa, Dahivada Aloo dum , Macha Patrapoda are a few more to name.

Mudhi Mansa is a dish where the lamb shanks were served with puffed rice. It’s a very popular dish from Baripada ,Odisha. The unique combination will surely impress you if you get a chance to relish.

I served Ambula Pagaw sorbet as a palate cleanser.

Ambula is a traditional and iconic ingredient in Odia cuisine. Ambula refers to dried, raw mango slices or pieces, which are used extensively in Odia culinary preparations. Ambula adds a unique and tangy flavor to Odisha dishes.

The Dessert was the world famous Chenna poda, the cheesecake of Odisha. It was served with Malai crema and frozen yogurt.
