Ugadi or Samvatsarādi is the New Year’s Day for the people of Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and  Karnataka states in India. It is festively observed in these regions on the first day of the Hindu month of Chaitra (in March or April of the Gregorian calendar).

The day is observed by drawing colorful patterns on floor called muggulu, mango leaf decorations on doors called toranalu, buying and giving gifts such as new clothes, giving charity to the poor, special bath followed by oil treatment, preparing and sharing a special food called pachadi, and visiting Hindu temples. The pachadi is a notable festive food that combines all flavors – sweet, sour, salty, bitter. In the Telugu Hindu traditions, it is a symbolic reminder that one must expect all flavors of experiences in the coming new year and make the most of them.

According to a legend God Brahma had created the vast universe on this auspicious day Ugadi, it is also said that the days, weeks, months and years were created in order to count time after which he had created all the other elements in the universe.

Finally we prepare delicious spread ,offer to God,share it among family and friends spreading the joy of this new beginning. Hence Ugadi the festival of New Year gives a feeling of joy, growth and prosperity.

I prepared the above platter/bhojanam as an offering to God on the occasssion of this festival.
