Most native Andhra properties rejoice essentially the most auspicious Thanksgiving competition, Sankranti with traditional festive foods like Kalagaya kura, Kalagaya Pulusu, Ariselu, Bobbatlu and Teepi Punugulu. Every area and every residence have their very own variations of festive preparations. Regardless of the customized, you might be assured that every residence will put together a particular dish to usher within the harvest season and supply because of nature, the sacred cow and beloved ancestors.
The newly harvested rice is cooked and provided as neivedhyam to the Gods. By and huge, Kalagaya kura aka blended vegetable curry is a standard conventional Sankranti preparation together with Kalagaya Pulusu aka Teepi Pulusu, blended greens cooked in jaggery and tamarind. The sweet dishes would possibly differ primarily based on the customs adopted by every residence like Boorelu, Ariselu, Kajjikayalu, Bobbatulu, Sunnundalu and many others.
