I’ll start with ugadi pachadi. Its the easiest pachadi i’ve ever made. We too make mango pachadi on Tamil new year day but its a bit time consuming process. But this recipe needs no cooking. Its just a mixture of 6 tastes ie , sweet , salt , spice , sour, tangy and bitter.. I liked it very much .. Adjust the quantity of ingredients based on ur liking.. I am not happy with the pictures. I’ll update it very soon.. :(
OBBATU / BOLI / PURAN POLI/BOBATTU
Usually i make poli using the left over channa dal puran. Yesterday when i went for shopping i saw a newly opened stall for selling obbattu and other snacks for ugadi especially..I bought some to taste. It was very nice. The thing is they make obbattu in front of us and they serve it really hot. So i was able to see how they rolled , the consistency of dough , puran etc.With that help,i tried it. It was very tasty ..We loved it a lot.It came out soft and thin.Oil is the most important ingredient here. The more oil u add , the more tasty the poli.. Use sesame oil / Gingely oil to get a nice taste.So no need to worry about adding more oil as it is is very good for health.Also the consistency of dough should be loose.. It should not be sticky, adding more oil make it non sticky. I have tried to give the quantity of water and oil what i used. Try and adjust if more quantity is needed.Keep the dough covered for 1 hour minimum which also helps to get soft poli. I used obbattu sheet to roll them. In india, u can get in all stores. It costs just 2 rs.. If u don’t get it , u can use either banana leaf or good quality polythene sheet. Grease it with oil and make the shape..
Ghee – 1 tbsp ( for greasing the poli , optional)
