Pitha is a dish from Bengal that is traditionally prepared during the winter festival of Makar Sankranti, almost in every household without exception. In old days and in villages, as the whole family gathered around the wood lit oven, it's a time for family reunions and a food feast with the pitha and jaggery, where every member contribute to its preparation.

It is one preparation, the tricks of which are passed on from the parents to the child as during preparation of the pitha everybody is encouraged whether male or female, to participate either by mixing the filling ingredients or simply wrap the edges.

The recipe is quite simple. It can take different shapes and have different fillings inside from coconut, kheer, sweet potatoes to cooked vegetables like cabbages, which differ from region to region. Only the main ingredient remains the same, which is from freshly grounded rice grains. The pitha can also be put on creamed milk and lightly boiled, which is called the doodh puli.
