Kutchi Odho

Odho, is a Kutchi delicacy.  A typical Kutchi meal consists of Bajre ja rotla, Odho, kadhi, garlic chutney & ‘goad’ aka jaggery. The meal is almost always followed by a chilled glass of ‘chhaas’, a very thin buttermilk concoction which helps cool down the body during the extremely dry & hot seasons. And haven’t we all tasted the wonderful Kutchi Dabeli some time or the other 🙂
Here is how I make Odho!
