Sorry friend's sharing this recipe very late as down with cold and flu from past one week.
In our childhood day's me n my brother both literally wait for the evening to eat makar chaula/prasad. We keep on watching maa when she is going to start puja and prepare the prasad. We both literally seat next to her with our plates and spoon ready to grab the prasad. Till now it's my favorite prasad and after a long time last year (Dec)had this prasad prepared by my Bou(sasau maa/mother in law) , prepared on Eve of sambardashami(sun puja).
And my Baba (father in law) and Bou (mother in law),other members will land in Bangalore on Monday and she is going to bring for me as I loved that so much on that day😍😍😍.Really food prepared by mother's is best n no one can beat the taste as it is prepared with unconditional love!!!!!!!

Let me share what us Makarsankranthi and how we celebrate in odisha
Odisha. The festival is known as Makar Sankranti in Odisha where people prepare makar chaula (Odia: ମକର ଚାଉଳ): uncooked newly harvested rice, banana, coconut, jaggery, sesame, rasagola, black pepper powder,Khai/Liaa and chena(cottage cheese) puddings for naivedya to gods and goddesses. ...This puja us performed near Tulsi plant (in our home and ma used to put lots of fruits and dry fruits too ,to enhance the taste and flavour) Therefore, this festival holds traditional cultural significance.
In Jagannath temple at puri this festival is observed as Uttarayana Yatra and Uttarayan Vandapana of Lord Jagannath. People offer a special kind of newly harvested rice and sugarcane mixed with jaggery, grated coconut, banana, molasses, chenna (cheese), Khua, various fruits, dry fruits and milk called “Makara Chaula” to the presiding deity, the Sun God & lit solemn pyre for satisfying the evil elements plaguing household. This day is also observed in Jagannath temple, Puri with two popular Veshas (costumes) of Lord Jagannath i.e. Nabanka Vesha (one day before Makar Sankranti) and Makara Chaurashi Vesha (on the day of Makar Sankranthi)
While in the cities like Katak , Bhubaneswar celebrates the festivals by flying kites . In some places Kite competition is held among peoples of different sahi’s (Colonies).People start purchasing kites much before the festive and keep everything ready for the eve.(source from Google).
