Tarkari is a generic term mostly used in Odia homes for vegetables and meat in gravy. The gravy may be thick or thin, spicy or bland as per the dish cooked. The thinness of the jhola (gravy) makes the dish light on the palate and demands expertise to raise it to a level distinct from water. This is a humble effort on my part to bring to you certain flavorful classic Odia dishes in a series of post which will make you understand the rich heritage of Odia cuisine. Besara is a typical form of Odia cooking which is prepared with mustard paste as the primary ingredient.
