Recap of A-Z Telangana Cuisine – BM # 63

26 mouthwatering dishes from Indian State of Telangana. Here is the roundup of the month long blogging marathon I did last month. For those of you coming here for the first time, here is a recap. Last month I did A-Z series on Telugu Telangana cuisine. Though I chose to document recipes from Telangana region, […]

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 […]

Tamata Atukula Vadiyalu ~ Tomato Poha Vadi

Vadiyalu are sun dried crisps, sundried lentil balls or patties made with either lentils, vegetables or rice. Name of the vadiyam (singular) starts with the ingredient used, followed by the word vadiyam. Vadiyalu are either added to curries to enhance the flavor, can be eaten with rice or eaten as it is as a snack. […]

Saggubiyyam Vadiyalu ~ Sago Vadi ~ Tapioca Pearls Crisps

Vadiyalu are sun dried crisps, sundried lentil balls or patties made with either lentils, vegetables or rice. Name of the vadiyam (singular) starts with the ingredient used, followed by the word vadiyam. Today I have vadiyalu made with saggubiyyam/sago/tapioca pearl. Saggubiyyam is cooked with plenty of water until soft and seasoned to taste. Saggubiyyam are […]

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 […]
