Ugadi pachadi


Happy Ugadi 2015

The Ugadi (New Year) pachadi is the first dish served to anyone on this festive day. There are many variations in recipes for this pachadi. It has sweet, bitter, sour and many other ingredients. The mixtures of different tastes within a single dish symbolizes happiness, sorrow etc emotions in one’s life. In my family’s recipe, we add lots of dry fruits. It’s amazing how a simple dish like this tastes different across families.
