Chakuli Pitha (Odia: ଚକୁଳି ପିଠା) is a flat Oriya rice-based fried cake traditionally made in the state of Odisha.

It is prepared using rice flour, black gram, refined edible oil (preferably ghee or mustard oil), and salt. It traces its origin during early 4th century BC when Buddha had tasted the Chakra apoopa from two merchants coming from Kalinga Kingdom to Magadha.
