Ghantia for Dutibahana Osha - ଦୂତୀବାହନ ଓଷା ଘାଣ୍ଟିଆ

Ghantia (Odia: ଘଣ୍ଟିଆ) or Ghanta Tarkari (Odia: ଘାଣ୍ଟ ତରକାରୀ) referred to one Odia food dish which is prepared by the mix of lots of vegetables. Ghantia is famous for the Dutibahana Osha (Odia: ଦୂତୀବାହନ ଓଷା)


So, yesterday was Mulastami or the Dutibahana Osha. Read more about this festival in our previous post. Women do fasts on this day and worship to Lord Dutibahana in the night by offering some special fruits, vegetables. And those vegetables used to prepare this dish in the next day morning.


In the morning, women who do fasts again worship near a pond and share some prasad among children. When I was a child, I used to go with them and now these things became a dream for us. But, we never miss this thing at home.

So, my mother had prepared this dish in the morning before going to the school. The curry is prepared by mixing of lots of vegetables whose name I also don't know. But the taste is awesome. And one more interesting this about this festival is, people do share this curry with their friends. As per our culture, happiness increases by sharing. So, we shared ours with others and other sent theirs to us. So, we can exchange a good taste with each other.
