Happy Ugadi

Wish you all a very happy Ugadi, the Telugu New Year Day.

This bunch of roses bloomed today to welcome the new year with me.
This festival is celebrated with different names in different states of India like “Gudi Padwa” in Maharastra and “Ugadi” in Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka.

On this special day we make a special dish with Neem buds, jaggery, raw mango,red chilli,salt and tamarind juice are ground together to make a coarse paste Called as “ Ugadi Pachadi" in Telugu.This paste has a very special significance, which denotes all the tastes that life has to offer like bitter,sweet,salty,spicy and sour. All the family members tastes this chutney to remember that life is a mixture of pleasure and pain,and we should be prepared to accept whatever life offers.
