About BOITHALU PODDA - traditional pumpkin cake

The farmers at my mother’s village in Orissa Orissa celebrate Kanumu, the day after Makara Sankranthi with traditional PUMPKIN CAKE prepared out of newly harvested rice, jaggery and pumpkin. And their indigenous baking style – over a large earthen firewood stove (chulha), massive cake spread is covered with thick layers of moist husk and banana leaves both sides and top heating by hot coal splinters atop.. A big hit with my friends in hostel days.
