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 ?
