I wish you all a very happy Ugadi and Hindu New Year. This year it is the Subhakritu Nama Samvatsara. Let everything be shubha (auspicious) to everyone!
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.
