Ugadi special

With Ugadi round the corner, it is again time for new beginnings. It is auspicious time to start new ventures. New year brings in festivity as we celebrate with puja and sweets. On this ocassion, here is a bonus of Ugadi Special, collection of recipes for the season.

It is the beginning of Lunar calendar. Yuga is era and adi means beginning. Thus, it is the beginning of another year. It signifies the spirit of accepting the joys and sorrows equally , which is marked by making the pachad, a combination of neem, jaggery,tamarind, mango .

With all enthusiasm, I thought of making a collaborated post, second time it is, I approached a few bloggers and all of them happily agreed and came up with new beautiful dishes. Thus,indian bloggers across the globe  have come together to bring a delicious platter here.

Here is a treasure trove of recipes that I am going to relish for a long time to come. A wonderful collection of sweets, rice dishes and a few accompaniments as salad and ambodi. Thankyou friends for making this happen.  It is a sheer joy and each one is meticulously made. Click on the titles to read the recipes   Happy Browsing and hope the festival is a grand affair with these additions to the menu.
