Some Ugadi Recipes to Enjoy with Your Family


  1. Hey soooper. Happy Ugadi to you too. Wishing you a happy n prosperous new year. The first recipe is bevu Bella right? But I too call it ugadi pachadi. 😉 for us obbittu, pachadi, kosamari , panaka n majjige buttermilk are must dishes. Somehow something or the other comes during ugadi n I m not able to post. Only have two recipes. This time too we are shifting house on ugadi.. anyways happy to see ur post

    1. Hi Srividhya, It is something similar to Bevu Bella. We do not grind it in Andhra Pradesh. 🙂

      Yes, I will make Obattu, Panakam and Kosumbari as well.

      Congratulations on moving to a new home. May it bless you with the best life has to offer.

      Nutana Varsha Shubhaakaankshalu to you and all of yours. 🙂

  2. Happy Ugadi in advance Aruna……last year we celebrated this festival with a Telugu couple in Netherlands and of course tasted Ugadi Pachadi….. It was nice in taste…..I like the way you explained the significance about it…….really we have to taste all these flavours in our life…..can’t skip a single one……I am also excited to try all your rice recipes…….. 🙂

  3. Wonderful post Aruna! I hope to try atleast a few recipes..Maharashtrians also make a chutney where all the tastes are blended; but bitter taste predominates with the use of neem in the chutney..

    1. Hi Nitali! Would love to read about the Maharashtrian Version of the chutney. Some in Andhra grind all the ingredients also, but we do not at home.

      My Mom being a mom would try to keep the neem flowers from reaching us. 🙂

      1. I will definitely try to post it sometime..The chutney basically has tamarind juice jaggery, chilli powder, salt, neem leaves and flowers (not crushed) and cumin..We do not grind too, else it becomes way too bitter..and the idea is the same as you wrote about..Balance in taste and balance in life 🙂

I would love to hear your thoughts and suggestions. Do leave me a comment.
