Till the year 2000, there was not a single organized Odiya Cuisine restaurant any where. Typical Odiya food was not available to the locals or the tourist. Observing the need for an Odiya cuisine restaurant the promoters of this restaurant decided to address this niche market and open an Odiya cuisine restaurant named DALMA. On the auspicious day of Chandan Jatra, in 2001, DALMA, the first ever organized Odiya cuisine restaurant opened its door to the public.
While deciding a name for the outlet, special care was taken to identify an element that registers an instant relation with Orissa and its food. ‘DALMA’ the house hold Odiya dish name was selected to be the brand of this outlet. Considering the success of this restaurant and popularity of the food served therein, today ‘DALMA’ is a brand. Truly Odiya, developed, promoted and grown from the state of Odisha.
MissionWhile most of the states in India, have there own distinct cuisine, Odisha had failed to establish its cuisine in the state and out of it, till DALMA came into existence. The objective of this chain of restaurants is to popularize Odishan cuisine, Odishan culture and Odisha’s tradition beyond Odisha’s boundaries. Let the world know there is a cuisine here in this east coast of India where food is less spicy, less oily, yet delicious. Be it veg or non vegetarian cooking, Odishan cuisine have a clear and distinct recipe, that stand out in the crowd.
