Ugadi Pachadi is a combination of 6 tastes. Bitter / Chedu (from neem flowers), Sweet / Teepi (from jaggery), Sour / Pulupu ( from tamarind), Salty / Uppu ( from salt), Spicy / Karam ( from green chile) and ogaru / astringent (from tender mango).
Makes: around 2 Servings of Dry Fruits Ugadi Pachadi.


Fresh or Dried Neem Flowers 1/2 tsp
Freshly Squeezed Tamarind Pulp 4 tbsps
Grated Jaggery 2 – 3 tbsps
Finely Chopped Tender Mango (peeled and deseeded) 1 tbsp
Finely Chopped Green Chile (deseeded) 1/4 tsp or Red Chile Powder a pinch
Finely Chopped Fresh Coconut 1 tbsp
Pistachios 3

Notes: Adjust the jaggery according to the sourness of the tamarind.

Suggestions: Adjust the amount of ingredients to make it more sweet, sour or spicy. Pluck the leaves of the neem flowers and add it for much milder bitterness.
