So it was a 'Traditional Pitha making competition' held during the month of January 16th, 2021. The contest has a 2 category consisting of Traditional Jolpan making contest and Pitha making with a modern twist in it. So i make 2 types of pithas, Jolpan which was very first time for me and a platter consisting of Rice powder mix with jaggery, curd and milk filled in a brownie. But interistingly i was able to secure the most "Creative and Unique" platter category for the second category.
Traditional Pitha consists of Bora Rice (Gila Pitha), Feni Pitha made of Arhoi Rice.
