Chhadakhai

People of Odisha celebrate Panchaka and Kartika Masa without Non-veg items. The people believe that it is sinful to consume any non-veg food throughout the month of Kartika. And when the Panchaka is over on Kartika Purnima, people celebrate Chhadakhai (ଛାଡ଼ଖାଇ). Chhadakhai is an Odia word which means we would eat those items, which they hadn't eat in previous 30 days during Kartika Masa. Actually, Chhadakhai is not a particular festival, it's the made-up festival by people.

We have collected some nonveg food items from various people who prepared for Chhadakhai.
