Alugadda Barada In a Thali From Telangana

Andhra Cuisine is famous for it's heavy use of spices and chillis rice is the staple food for this reagion. There are many regional variations in this cuisine. Telangana is the Western reagion of Andhra Pradesh. This cuisine is influenced by Persian and Afghan cuisine because this reagion was under the control of Muslim Kings for long time. But in northern districts like Karimnagar people adopted some Maharastrain dishes in to their cuisine like kadi, Barada. In the northwest it is influenced by Karnataka and in the west Chattisgarh. From Nalgonda this cuisine is mingled with Andhra Cuisine.
hyd thali                                             This month I have chosen the theme Indian thali for first week in BM. So I am trying to post regional Thalis from Andhra Pradesh. In Andra Pradesh each region has it's own blends of tastes and flavours. In that array Telangana cuisine has it's unique flavors. I am not so perfect in this cuisine but I know little bit about this cuisine so I am trying to  make a thali with some Telangana recipes. In this thali I mix both traditional Telangana and Muslim cuisines. In Traditional telangana cuisine there are many delicious dishes to explore but this one post is not enough for that so I took few recipe to fill my thali
