Bhubaneswar, Nov 20: After observance of a month of pious diet for Kartik month, people were seen flocking the fish, chicken market on Chhadakhai today.
People were seen at fish, chicken and mutton outlets to relish non-vegetarian foods, but due to Saturday not only the people who do not eat non-vegetarian food, the business of the fish and meat sellers have also dampened a bit.
The mouth-watering and enticing plethora of Odia delicacies like Mutton jhola, Mutton Kassa, Chingudi Besara, Chingudi Bhaja, Mudhi Ghanta, Kankada Jhola, are a few of that expansive list which seems to be on ban during the Kartik month.

As per reports, mutton (goat meat) has been selling at a price of Rs 700 per kg. While broiler chicken is being sold at Rs 200, the price of prawn is hovering in between Rs 300 – 400 ad fish in between Rs 180-300.
