According to the Skanda Purana, Mahaprasad is treated as ‘Anna Brahma’ whereby Lord Jagannath redeems His devotees by permitting them to partake from the Mahaprasad. The massive temple kitchen prepares the Mahaprasad in voluminous quantities through a unique steaming process in earthen pots, kept on above the other.
Offerings generally include varieties of cooked rice, daal, soups, stews, rice, kiccharis, and vegetables, sweet-dishes and cakes all made from standard ingredients that remained constant for two thousand years. The ingredients must be local, organic, and native to the area. Meanwhile, dry confectionaries are prepared out of sugar, jaggery, wheat flour, ghee, milk, etc.
As the belief goes, the divine flavour is imparted to the Mahaprasad only after the offerings are blessed by Lord Jagannath and Goddess Bimala. It is then carried to Anand Bazar to be sold to lakhs of devotees on a single day.
Cooked through scientific methods the Mahaprasad does not spoil easily and can be safely retained for a long period in the earthen pots. While tourists prefer to carry the dry confectionaries(Khaja Maha Bhog) that stay fresh for days together, residents of Puri and nearby places rely on serving Mahaprasad to their guests during auspicious social functions.
