Purana and Itihasa (epic history)
Lopikā (लोपिका) forms part of a common diet in ancient Kashmir (Kaśmīra) as mentioned in the Nīlamatapurāṇa.—Lopikā is mentioned as an offering for deities and Piśācas and as food to be taken on Śiva-caturdaśī. If K. gloss giving Levari is right, it must be the same as Indian Revaḍī, a small cake of sugar covered with seeds (verses 437, 513, 555-56). Most of the references to the articles of diet occur in the Nīlamata in connection with the offerings made to the gods but it is not difficult to infer from them the food and drink of the common people because “what a man eats his gods eat”.Source: archive.org: Nilamata Purana: a cultural and literary study
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences. The eighteen mahapuranas total over 400,000 shlokas (metrical couplets) and date to at least several centuries BCE.
