Do there exist cookbooks, possibly in English, about food from the state of Odisha, India -- preferably written by an author from that region?

  • This feels like it's probably okay in the same way sourcing questions are - the actual question is how to search for them, as evidenced by the answer suggesting searching for Orissa or Oriya instead.

I don't have any such cookbooks, but a google search turned up a lot of blogs with recipes. If you search, include Orissa and Oriya as well as Odisha.

I also found several English-language cookbooks through searching on Amazon.in (best search term was oriya cooking). Some of them are also available on their other sites. I have not seen or cooked from any of these cookbooks to give any personal recommendation.

Purba: Feasts from the East: Oriya Cuisine from Eastern India

Classic Cooking of Orissa

Healthy Oriya Cuisine

  • I just realized you are German; the first and third of those books seem to be available at amazon.de also.
