Today is Ugadi, the New Year for all Andhrites :) Wish you all a very Happy Ugadi and hope this year is prosperous and fun-filled for you and all your loved ones.And, enjoy the sweet and sour and bitter taste of Ugadi pacchadi (special chutney made on Ugadi) and life.
Today's special dish is Ugadi pacchadi. It is a special chutney which has I don't know how many ingredients and it embodies all the tastes - sweet, sour, bitter, salty, hot and some more which I am not completely sure of. The significance of this pacchadi is that it symbolizes the tastes of life which comes in all forms at various stages - sometimes it is happy, sometimes sad, sometimes challenging, sometimes hopeful and sometimes drastic like there is no tomorrow. As we enjoy the taste of this pacchadi, we should learn to enjoy all the flavors of life and live in the today. So, have a great year ahead!!!
