Last night, Ayushman posted a snapshot of a plate of the delectable Odiya sweet chhena poda. Literally meaning roasted cheese, the chhena poda is a showstopper of a dessert and tastes absolutely amazing. However, very few even know about our very own homegrown cheesecake that is enjoyed by Odiya people around the world. It is customary for people coming from Bhubaneshwar, to carry along a box of the sweet, to gift to friends and relatives. (Also Read: Flavours of Odisha: What is a Traditional Odia Meal?)
