Ugadi Pachadi


Hello friends...how did Ugadi go?
Ugadi was to be celebrated on Monday...but since there was an eclipse on that day and it's considered inauspicious...(and since eclipes cannot be
postponed ;-) )...Ugadi was officially postponed to Tuesday !

And for those of us who did not celebrate Ugadi....how many of you'll got Ugadi pachadi ? :P
Well..we got Pachadi from two Telugu families...
Let me give u the contents of that ( of what I could make out )

Pachadi 1. Had Banana puree, Neem flowers (main ingredient ! ) , tamarind extract , raw mango pieces , Jaggery , fried gram dal & coconut scrappings .

Pachadi 2. Had all the above stuff ,plus cashews , green grapes , raisins and
tuitty-fruitty pieces ( the colored candied orange rind that we find in fruit bread ) .

Between the two I liked the first one which is the basic recipe and it had a
mild bitter-sweet taste . It's a mixture of six differnt tastes which is supposed to symbolise the six emotions .
Did any of you get other versions of Ugadi Pachadi ?

//it its complicated//

The simplest way to say:
"I think thats how things should be, but I do not know why."
