Ugadi pachadi, Telugu festival special pachadi recipe
- Published on: 3/29/2017
- Ugadi pachadi is a special dish made on Telugu New Year day with six tastes in it, by tasting which on the new year day, we can face the six emotions in life equally. I have added honey and lemon juice in place of tamarind and jaggery. So it may not be the traditional way, still includes all the tastes.
Wishing you all a happy Ugadi, who ever celebrating!
Mango, chopped – 1/2 cup
Honey – 3 tbsp
Salt – 1/4 tsp
Neem flower – 1 tsp
Black pepper powder – 1/4 tsp
Lemon juice – 1/2 lemon
Banana (optional) – 1/2, mashed
*Roasted gram dal, cashews, chopped cucumber can be added to the pachadi.
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and the pachadi is ready to serve!
Black pepper powder is preferred to offer God than red chilli powder. Otherwise, you can add a green chilli chopped too.
Jaggery if used in place of honey, dissolve in water, filter and use in the recipe.
Instead of neem flower, neem leaves can also be used.
