Happy Talimpu Anniversary and a very Happy Ugadi to all my Talimpu.com visitors.

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 Cups of Ugadi Pachadi.

Ingredients:

Neem Flowers 2 Tbsps (Fresh or Dried)
Tender Raw Green Mango 1 – 2
Fresh Coconut 3 (4 inch Pieces)
Jaggery 1/4 Cup (Grated)
Tamarind 3 – 4 inch Sized Ball
Red Chili Powder a Pinch
Salt a Pinch

Method of preparation:

Soak tamarind in a 1 1/2 Cups of water and extract all the thick pulp.
Strain the tamarind and collect all the liquid in a mixing bowl.
Add grated jaggery to the mixing bowl which has the tamarind liquid.
If using dried neem leaves, soak in few tablespons of warm water before adding to the above mixing bowl.

Wash and finely chop the raw mango discarding the seed.
Finely chop the fresh coconut pieces.
Mix all other ingredients into tamarind and jaggery liquid.
Mix thoroughly and adjust any seasoning if required.
Serve a small bowl full of ugadi pachadi.
Notes: If using banana, make sure to add it just before serving.

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: Mashed banana can also be added to ugadi pachadi. You can also add chopped sugarcane, roasted chana dal, …
Other Names: Ugadi Pachadi
