Ugadi Special Recipes

With Ugadi just round the corner I thought I will list out our festival Ugadi Special Dishes that gets done at home. Growing up Ugadi has always been a special day, spent with family. This year I might be missing out on the action as I will most probably be working. Still we will do the pooja early and have a mini feast if not the elaborate feast that normally happens. Will keep you posted on that. Meanwhile you enjoy these Special Ugadi Dishes.
