Ugadi Subhakankshalu - Mamidikaya Pulihora

Hi Everyone

Andariki Vikruthi Nama Samvasthra Subhakanshalu. Wish you all happy Ugadi(Andhra), Yugadi(Karnataka), Gudi Padwa(Maharashtra).

Today I made Ugadi Pachhadi and mango pulihora for naivedyam.

Detailed recipe for Mango Pulihora can be found in my previous posts.

Significance of Ugadi Pachhadi : Symbolizes the fact that life is a mixture of different experiences (sadness, happiness, anger, fear, disgust, surprise) , which should be accepted together and with equanimity.

Below are the ingredients in the Pachhadi:

Neem -for bitter
Raw Mango -- for Tang
Jaggery and ripe banana -- for Sweetness
Tamarind - for Sourness
Chili/Pepper - for heat
Salt - for saltiness
