Jay Shri Ganesh

Chuda Ghasa is a traditionally Odia delicacy which originates from the coastal area of the state.

Notably, preparing Chuda Ghasa is a community activity where women sit around banana leaves mixing the mixture to perfection.

It is generally made in large quantities during festivals, family function and any other auspicious occasion.

Chuda Ghasa is offered to Lord Ganesha on this holy day in Odisha.

Rice flakes (Chuda as we say in Odia) – 1 kg

Grated fresh coconut – 2, big sized
