It is an old tradition chicken dish of Odisha. Mostly popular in village area, now it is one of the signature dish of different restaurants. BEARA:- MEANS a pest in which MUSTARD SEED is key ingredient & It's basic ingredients for batter are MUSTARD SEEDS +GREEN CHILI +GINGER +GARLIC+CURRY LEAVES +RED CHILI. Initially it is done with Fish as it is a stable food of Odisha. It's a dish of Labour in old days. Because they are mostly farmers or sailors they catch fish from muddy crop fields or from river or sea. As they are so tired after hard work, they want something high protein content & chief. So they make fire near the field by some wood or dry leaf. They keep some BESAR PEST or Make it instantly, take a fresh leaf(Sal tree or Banana tree) add Besar Pest & Fish together, give it a nice mix. Put the COATED Fish & MUSTARD OIL on LEAF . And then put the leaf on fire. It is usually a slow cooking process. So to eat the fish at 12pm. They put things on fire at 10am. They take PAKHALA BHAT (WATER RICE) WITH MACHA BESARA (FISH BESARA). IT IS A HEAVENLY FOOD & FEELINGS FOR THEM.
