Puri Cheesecake

Sweets in Puri

Bikram Sahoo and his six brothers have been churning out the unique Odishan delight known as chhena poda (made from cottage cheese, sugar and cardamom, and cooked in an iron pan over an open flame, it's a cross between a cheesecake and a flan) for more than 45 years from their sweet shop in Puri's holy quarters. A real treat.

To find it, walk down Temple Rd from Jagganath Mandir, pass a small public square about 300m on the right, and it’s another 100m on your right next door to Jagannath Pump House.
