(Telugu people follow Lunar calendar & celebrate Ugadi as their new year. Similarly Odiya people follow Solar Calendar & celebrate their new year as PaNa Sankranti. As Ugadi Pachadi is made and taken on Ugadi, Bello PaNa is prepared and taken on Pana Sankranti. Bael fruit in English is known as Maredu Pandu In Telugu, Bello In Oriya and Bel Phal in Hindi. Enjoy this Bello PaNa drink also on PoNa Sankranti.)

Recipe Text


Ingredients:

    • Tamarind Pulp – 2tbsps
    • Grated Jaggery – 1tbsp
    • Finely Chopped Green Chilies – 1/4tsp
    • Salt – 1/8tsp
    • Finely Chopped Mango Pieces – 1tsp
    • Neem Flowers – 1tsp


    (Online Conversion utility to convert Gms to Cups & Temperatures etc)

    Preparations:


    Pluck neem flowers from the stems. Pluck fully bloomed flowers otherwise they taste more bitter. Pluck all flowers and keep them aside. Take a tender mango and wash it. Unlike fully grown raw mango, a tender raw mango has a peculiar flavor. So use a fully grown raw mango only and only in case you do not get a tender raw mango. Peel the mango and cut it vertically. Remove the inner portion of the mango (JEEDI) and cut it into fine pieces. The vegetable you eat should also look nice to eat—it tastes good which looks nice to eat. Soak tamarind in water till soft. Squeeze out pulp from the soaked tamarind—or else put the soaked tamarind in a mixie jar and run it to get a smooth pulp. Take only smooth pulp and discard the residue. Grate or powder the jaggery. Similarly wash and finely chop the green chili. Here we are chopping all the ingredients finely—this is because—they get mixed well soon, they look good in appearance and also they taste better to eat.

    Method:

    Take tamarind pulp in a bowl and add finely chopped green chilies, neem flowers, grated jaggery, finely chopped mango and salt. Mix all well till the jaggery is melted. This pachhadi tastes excellent so in case you wish to make in large quantities just multiply the ingredients shown.Serve this tasty pachhadi to all your family members early in the morning and welcome the TELUGU NEW YEAR.

    Enjoy the six flavors of this unique pachhadi which indicates that life is considered to be balanced only when it is a mixture of joy, sorrow, happiness, sad moments, anger and tranquility.                


    Wish You All A Happy Ugadi

     


    Points to Notice

    Similarly we use the seasons first Tender Mango & freshly bloomed Neem flowers

    Happy Ugadi.
    I am Jennifer Kumar and I am so excited to find your channel! I found it by searching for ugadi pachadi and got to the 8th page your recipe was there!!
    Oh my gosh you have done such a fantastic job. I am an American married to an Indian. Before I got married I lived in Chennai for two years. I had got to acquire a good taste for Tamil vegetarian cooking and when I came back to US before meeting my husband I started to learn cooking on my own and from friends. I love your channel. Though I don't know Telugu I know you have your blog in English. I have seen already four or five topics. So inspiring. You are so creative with the telling of the recipes. I like to hear the Telugu though I don't understand it.
    I may write more doubts to you but my first doubt is with the idli patra. How to use this implement? Does the whole contraption go directly on the stove or in the rice cooker? Can it be used on an electric stove? How do you steam idlis in a rice cooker? Does it take less or more time than in a pressure cooker? Here I make idli dosa quite often. Just last week finally got the butterfly mixie and the dosa/idli batter is heavenly. But the problem is the pressure cooker on the electric range takes too much time to heat. By time all is done it has taken more than 30-40 minutes to steam the idlis. It should not take so long. I want to find an easier way. I have seen idli pan with holes too. What would you make in this? I know few Kerala dishes and we have made puttu in that.. anything like that?

    I have a doubt..Regarding your post at kitchenaids
    I really like it very practical. I am curious- can I have permission to reprint your article on two of my blogs-

    http://shakahaari.blogspot.com/

    Let me know what you think! I can post the videos and text just like you have it.

    Thanks soooo very much for sharing your talents with the world! :)

    Jennifer Garu,

    I am thrilled to meet you for the simple reason, your comments and observations are sincere, especially for the efforts made by you to see my videos in telugu though you do not understand telugu.

    The idli patra goes directly on to the stove. For further details please visit my Idli Recipe page.

    I dont have an electric stove. I put the idli patra directly on the gas stove. I put around 500-700ml water which takes about 10 minutes to reach boil and produce steam. Thereafter it takes 7 minutes for the idlis to cook. The susequent batches will be faster, but you need to check the quantity of water before each fresh batch. May be you are putting more water for which it is taking longer time to produce steam.

    As regards using the content of my website i request you to kindly go through http://www.gayatrivantillu.com/articles/bhikshaam-dehi

    I would be happy if you post an acknowledgement and a link to my website on your blog at the place where you refer the text and videos.

    • One confusion since I am seeing this first time.. how do you put the tamarind in the mixie? Do you soak the dry tamarind and mix all into pulp including seeds too?

      alaivani 2 years ago
    • Soak the tamarind for a few minutes, remove the seeds and put it into a mixer
