We have invited couple of our friends for lunch to celebrate the Ugadi festival today. And for the Bhakthi ending with the bhukthi, I have prepared the traditional Ugadi naivedyam:

భక్షాలు (Bobbatlu, Puran Poli)
మామిడికాయ పులిహొర (Mango Pulihora)
ఉల్లిపాయ మరియు ఆలు బజ్జిలు (Bajji)
అన్నము (Sona Masuri Rice)
మామిడి-బీరకాయ పప్పు (Mango-Turai Dal)
బీరకాయ పొడి కుర (Turai with no onion)
ఆలుగడ్డ పొడి కూర (Festival Day Alu Preparation)
భక్షాల చారు (Bhakshala Rasam)
పెరుగు (Yogurt)

    Happy Ugadi and thanks friends for sharing your neivedyam with me (us). I felt blessedly stuffed for the past two days.:)

    Arundati: I agree, the leftovers are the best and make the marathon festival cooking experience worth the effort.:)

    Sailaja: Happy Ugadi and you have truly Annapurna’s blessings.:) Its Andhra’s and maa andari adrustamu that we have Sailu’s Kitchen on the web.

    Manju: well, even in Telugu it goes by two names Bhakshalu/Bobbatlu. Like the supreme being, this tasty dish has so many names and I think any name is right one as long as the final product is the same.:) Jai ho to B(p)oli!
