Maha Prasadam – Abhada Prasad at Doorstep, Puri
The temple kitchen has got the capacity to cook for a LAKH of devotees on a day. Mahaprasad is cooked only in earthen pots and medium of food is fire wood only. When the cooked food is carried to the offering hall in slings of earthen pots no flavor comes up from the food but when the same is offered to Lord Shri Jagannath and Vimala and carried back to the sale point, a delicious smell spells along in the breeze to the pleasant surprise of the devotees. Now the food is blessed. Mahaprasad can only be eaten on banana leaf and sitting on the floor.
Everyday throughout the year 56 varieties of dishes are prepared and offered to the Deities of the Shri Jagannath Temple. These consist of preparation of rice, dal and other selected vegetables. The food cooked in accordance with prescribed procedures, and is offered first to Lord Shri Jagannath and then to Goddess Vimala after which it turns into Mahaprasad.
