Ugadi Pachadi | Ugadi Chutney

*Happy Ugadi Friends*

Ugadi pachadi

Ugadi/Yugadi or Gudi Padwa represents a start of new year & is celebrated in Andhra, Karnataka & Maharashtra. On this day we make a chutney with 6 different taste which are called "Shadruchulu" in telugu & is offered to god.

On this day they make purnam poli or obbatu is made of channa dal & jaggrey as filling. Along with it they also make pulihora which is believed auspicious to offer yellow rice to god. 
Here I'm sharing one of my grand mom's recipe. She finishes the dish with a seasoning & definitely that makes the dish much tastier.
