About Amba chittau (Mango rice pancake) Recipe

Chittau Pitha is an authentic dish of Odisha and also a part of Chhappan Bhog of Lord Jagganath. It is prepared mostly on the occasion of Chitalagi Amabasya, also known as Chitau Amabasya, and also on other festivals like Rath Yatra. Basic ingredients are rice and coconut. Here I have given the dish a fruity twist by adding mango puree to the batter. Very healthy and delicious recipe.
