Ugadi Pachadi / 6 Taste Pachadi

Ugadi Subakankshalu!!! May this festival usher in prosperity and lot of new beginnings. Ugadi is the Telugu New Year which is celebrated by Hindus in Andhra. Yugadi/Ugadi in sanskrit means the beginning of new age. On this day, a very special and traditional dish is made called Ugadi Pachadi/6 Taste Pachadi  with Raw Mango, Coconut, Tamarind, Jaggery, Chillies and Neem Flowers. This marks that all these flavors will be balanced in our life and is a very easy to make dish.

Jaggery- Sweet- Which represents the happiness of life
Tamarind - Sour- That signifies the sour moments of life which makes our life worth living
Salt- Which represents the fear
Neem Flowers - Bitter- That means sadness
Mango - Tangy- Which represents disgust
Chillies - Spice- That signifies anger

Happy Ugadi dear all :)
