This is prepared for the devotees on special order.
This pitha is offered to Lord Jagannath during the Sakala Dhup at around 10.00AM. This Pitha is a traditional Rice and Urad Daal Mix pitha with sweet coconut stuffing and covered with turmeric leaves and then steamed.
The procedure of making is very simple and traditional. Soak rice, black grams and bengal grams for 3-4 hrs or soak overnight. Grind to make a batter just like Idli batter (it need not to make fine paste). Keep it for 3-4 hrs for fomentation. Add salt and Soda bi carbonate (Optional) and mix well.
Heat ghee / oil in a pan. Add grated Coconut, Paneer and Jaggery together and saute for a while till the mixture should dry. Add cardamom powder, pepper powder and mix well. Keep aside.
Now, take a Haldi patra, clean it. Put a big tsp batter on it and flatten it. Spread 1-2 tsp of coconut stuffing in the center and fold the leaf from both sides. Now heat a steamer with little water. Put all the stuffed leaf in the steamer and steam it like Idli preparation. Or you can take a big wide pot which filled with half of water. Tie a muslin cloth tightly by covering around its mouth. Put the leafs over it and cover with a lid. Steam it in a high flame for about 15-20 minutes. Switch off the flame and let it remain for more 5 minutes. Take it out from the pot or steamer and Serve with Dalma Or as your choice.
The packet also contains divine Nirmalya and idol of Lord Jagannath.
