Meals Ready !

Dear Foodies,


Starting this year with Ugadi pachadi which contains the six tastes/flavors. Read more about it at Sailu's blog.

Our mini-plate meal for Ugadi, Lime rice, Aratikaya podimas, Aratikaya fry, Mamidikaya pappu, papads & uppu mirapa, mamidikaya pachadi with steamed rice in the middle.

Dessert was the best ever paal payasam I have made.

But I did make the mistake of adding nuts and raisins, like Ammini mentioned in her book that lovely Manisha had been doling out dishes from, this one needs no decoration !
A closer look at a few dishes,
Raw plantain, steamed and flavored with green chillies and coconut, Raw plantain stir fry, Green mango dal and steamed rice.

Mango pachadi, ripe mangoes cooked in water flavored with tamarind and jaggery and seasoned with mustard seeds and red chillies. The perfect match between sweet and hot flavors.
