This is one of the most traditional dish of western Odisha . First time I had this in a forest area… because that people don’t have much ingredients to cook. Bamboo shoot grew in hilly regions,then this can be stored for more than one year,so it’s act like staple food. Every year this was made by cutting the bamboo sprouts.
