Dalma from Indian State Odisha

Dalma is one of the most comfort and staple food of Odiya people. 

Dalma recipe may sound like Sambar but don’t get confused. Dalma does not contain tamarind and is thick in consistency compared to sambhar.


With the combination of lentils and vegetables, the Odia Dalma recipe is undoubtedly packed with proteins, vitamins, and minerals making it a very healthy dish.


As per archeological records, Dalma was invented by the Savaras tribe in Odisha. They used to add locally grown vegetables and pulses like – brinjal, papaya, elephant foot yam, pumpkin, chana dal, etc to prepare the dish. They used to offer this dish to Lord Jagannath. Later the dish was adopted by the king and become a part of the Chappan bhog of Puri Jagannath temple.


panch phoron consists of fenugreek seed, nigella seed, cumin seed, black mustard seed and fennel seed in equal parts.
