Photobucket
Marriage is a turning point in every body s life. In India most of the marriage s is arranged marriages so people start doing shopping and all other works 1 month before itself. Women in the house starts making masala powders, vadiyalu (sun dried rice or urad dal wafers) and pickles. Especially sweets Laddoo is one of the favorite sweet in pelli bhojanam(shadi ki thali, marriage feast) and also one more sweet in Andhra is famous in this feast is Ariselu. In savory s masala vada and kaarapposa (a savory snack made with chick pea flour) and bajji s will serve with rice and other Currys. Now coming to the curry s Mudda pappu (plain tour dal cooked with little salt and nicely mashed) is the dal which is must in Andhra Shadi ki thali.


Here is a lovely song about Pelli bhojanam (marriage feast)
And here I go with simple Mudda pappu recipe..........

No pelli bhojanam is Complete without Pappu...you are missing the essential ingredient of Andhra Bhojanam....which is called Pappannam...meaning Pelli Bhojanam

Hello Anonymous
I think you didn't read my full post I gave the recipe for Muddapappu in the post and check the list of items 13- muddapappu. Traditionally muddapappu is served on pelli bhojanam but now a days people are changeig that to tomato pappu or akukura pappu. But now a day it is totally changed to biriyani and curries please read the full post before leave the comment.
