This Ugadi Pachadi is traditionally made on Ugadi, Telugu New Year’s Day.  Nowadays it is being made in metal utensils but traditionally it was made in earthen pots.  The taste varies considerably and the one made in earthen pots is superior.

This is usually made using 6 tastes and each signifying an experience of life.  Some make this without using all the 6 tastes.  It varies region to region & family history/traditions.  We do not use Salt (fear) & Chilies/Pepper (Anger) but some do.  If you like, you  can add them when preparing this.
