I come across this site while looking for sheek kebab recipe. I appreciate the chef for his veggie sheek kabab and wish him the best for his good message to share ideas and recipes with others.
I too have seen the discrepancies in the recipe of Arisa Pitha and I agree with both the persons earlier commented. I’m a Bengali and the word Pitha comes from eastern part of the country (Bengal, Assam, Orissa)
But I shall not challenge anyone for it.
