Ugadi & Talimpu Anniversary

16 Mar

Dry Fruits Ugadi Pachadi.

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
Cashews 2
Almonds 2
Raisins 10
Salt a Pinch

Method of preparation:

Soak almonds and pistachios in warm water for couple of minutes.
Finely chop up the pistachios, cashews, almonds and raisins.

Mix all the ingredients together along with quarter cup of water (if preferred) and serve a tbsp of the ugadi pachadi.

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.
Variations: Add fresh fruits like apple, banana, orange, watermelon or more dried fruits like anjeer etc. Add honey for sweetness. For variations of the ugadi pachadi. click here .
Other Names: Dry Fruits Ugadi Pachadi.

Today is Talimpu Anniversary. Am so grateful to all the people who kept visiting talimpu and supported it in many ways. Thank you.
Happy Ugadi
