Wish the readers a very happy Ugadi and New Year. I wish and pray that you are all staying at home and are safe! Hope the beginning of the New Year brings great joy and destroys all evil. This year it is Sarvari Nama Samvatsara.
Habbada Adige (festive food) plays a very important role during festivals. The Ugadi platter usually consists of Mavinakayi Chitranna (Mango Rice), Payasa (sweet dish), Bonda (fritters), Holige (sweet lentil or coconut stuffed bread), Tovve (lentil dish), and many many more. As we are all home bound, let us prepare what we can and let the positive aroma fill the air.
