Zucchini Pachadi

For the last letter ‘Z’ in this A-Z Challenge, Journey Through Telangana Cuisine, I have a pachadi (chutney) recipe. Letter Z was a tricky one. As I mentioned in my yesterday’s post, I had finalized my dishes for Y & Z when I first made my initial list months ago. When I seriously started working […]

Yendu Kobbari Rava Laddu ~ Dry Coconut Rava Laddu

Letter ‘Y’ was one of the tough letters in this A-Z Challenge, Journey Through Telangana Cuisine. However, dishes for these two letters were decided months ago, when I first made the initial list back in Fall. When I seriously started working on this BM couple of months ago, I realized there might be a hole […]

Xtra Spicy Golichina Kodi Koora ~ Xtra Spicy Chicken Curry

Today we have one of the toughest letters to work with in this A-Z Challenge, Journey Through Telangana Cuisine. There is no regional word, vegetable, fruit or dish that starts with X. To go around this, we decided to use an adjective. I had a few ideas but was unsure what to do for this […]

Wadiyalu

I could not think of any regional food starting with W, in this A-Z Challenge, Journey Through Telangana Cuisine. I had to twist the letter, just like I did with Q, to come up with a post for today. I have W for Wadiyalu, actually spelled vadiyalu. Wadiyalu are sundried crisps, sundried lentil balls, sun […]

Vankaya Poornam ~ Stuffed Baby Eggplant Curry

V for vankaya poornam is what I made for this A-Z Challenge, Journey Through Telangana Cuisine. Vankaya poornam is nothing but stuffed brinjals or baby eggplants and also known as gutti vankaya in some parts. In Telangana, any stuffed vegetable such as gutti vankaya or gutti dondakaya is called vankaya poornam and dondakaya poornam respectively. […]

Uppudu Pindi ~ Rice Rava Upma

As we enter the final stretch of this marathon, A-Z Challenge Journey Through Telangana Cuisine, I am running out of steam and do not know how to start this post. This and the next three are going to be short, as I am yet to write the posts. Last two are already scheduled and that […]

Tamata Pappu ~ Tomato Dal

After yesterday’s long post, I am going to or at least try to keep this short. In this A-Z Challenge, Journey Through Telangana Cuisine, today I have a very simple recipe that is prepared all across India with few variations. I never paid much attention to letter T until very late and in fact, this […]

Sakinalu

In this A-Z Journey Through Telangana Cuisine, for ‘S’ I have a traditional Telangana snack, sakinalu. Sakinalu are deep fried, round concentric shaped snack prepared with freshly ground rice flour. This is one of the first recipes to be cooked for this BM, along with chegodi back in January, when I was visiting my mom […]

Royyala Koora ~ Rustic Shrimp Curry without Tomato

In this A-Z challenge, Journey Through Telangana Cuisine, for R, I have royyala koora (prawn curry). I already have three versions of royyala koora on the blog; shrimp curry with onion paste, shrimp curry without onion paste and shrimp curry without tomatoes, and one might ask what is so special about this one? Last summer […]

Qimah Vundalu ~ Meat Balls

In this A-Z Challenge, Journey Through Telangana Cuisine, I am doing Q for Qimah. This was one of the tough letters to work with and I could not think of a vegetable, fruit or a dish in Telugu that starts with Q. The only ingredient I could think of is qimah or qeema. Going by […]
