'Pakhala Bhata- an Odiya dish to feel drowsy during hot summers'- K.J.S.Chatrath

Photo source-Wikipedia 

Pakhaḷa seasoned with curry leaves, cumin and fried chilly peppers with alu-potala bhaja (potato and pointed gourd deep sauté) and Badi bhaja.

Sometimes water is mixed in the leftover rice of dinner and it is allowed to ferment. When taken for lunch the next day, this pakhal bhata gives one slight drowsiness

  1. This is the same as we do it in Tamil Nadu- it is called Bagala Baath there.
