Alu Dum Dahi Bara in Bhubaneswar
What Pizza is for Italy…Vada Pav is for Mumbai… Alu Dum Dahi Bara is for Odisha.
It’s an assortment of fried lentil paste soaked in curd or Dahi Bara, alu dum or Potato curry, Guguni yellow peas curry which is garnished with sev or deep fried gram flour.
Especially if you belong to Bhubaneswar and Cuttack. It’s an ideal meal option here no matter what of the day may it be breakfast, lunch, or brunch. It’s one of those Odia delicacies which I really craved for while away from hometown and I know many Odia people staying away from home do as well.
For all those hungry Odia people craving for the perfect platter of Alu Dum Dahi Bara in Bhubaneswar need to come to Kharvel Nagar, where just opposite to Forum Mart is Mitu Bhai’s stall who makes the most amazing alu dum dahibara I’ve ever tasted. He opens his stall from morning 8 am and stays till he’s all sold out which is most by 1 pm or 1300 hrs. Apart from the taste the hygiene is also maintained which is one of the main reasons for mentioning about this place. He’s a hard working man who takes the help of his family to make the arrangements so he can reach his selling point everyday on time. You gotta eat here!!!
