I wish you all a very happy Ugadi and Hindu New Year. This year it is the Shobhakrit Nama Samvatsara. Let everything be shobha (grace) 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.
