Traditional flavour of Aati month mesmerises people

Ravichandra Kannadikatte and troupe perform a Yakshagana dance during the ‘Pilikula Atida Koota’ organised at the Traditional Guthu House in Dr K Shivaram Karanth Pilikula Nisargadhama on Sunday.

The spell of the Aati month, the rainy season in Tulu Nadu, kept the people mesmerised in a village atmosphere.

The lashing rain provided a befitting backdrop for the Yakshagana artistes to be work in full flow.

The mouth-watering dishes of the season only added to the popularity of the ‘Pilikula Aatida Koota,’ organised at the Traditional Guthu House in the Dr K Shivarama Karantha Pilikula Nisargadhama on Sunday.

The Yakshagana dance by Ravichandra Kannadikatte and troupe on the platform set up in the front yard of the Guthu house, was greatly appreciated by the art enthusiasts who gathered in large numbers.

Videos on toddy tapping, preparation of traditional palm jaggery and of ‘akkimudi’ presented inside the Guthu House were educative.

Chanchala Tejomaya and other members of the Mahila Mandaligala Okkoota served special food items including ‘pelatha gatti’, ‘manjal iretha gatti’, and ‘eddemunchida kashaya’ to the visitors.

The visitors also relished the special meals served on the occasion, which comprised 20 items - ‘ambade uppinakayi’, ‘thimare chutney’, ‘neeru mavinakayi chutney’, ‘mullusouthe pacchodi’, ‘uppad pacchir mattu kadle palya’, ‘sojank mattu halasina beeja upkari’, ‘kanile mattu hesaru gasi’, ‘mette ganji’, ‘patrode’, ‘halasina ele kottige’, ‘harive dantu’, ‘sevu dantu’, ‘heere mattu paduvalakayi sambar’, ‘soute kaihuli’, ‘huruli saaru’, jeegujje podi’, ‘ambade mattu kanchala menaskai’, ‘sevu tetla mattu soute sambar’, halasina hannu appa’ and ‘sarnadye payasa’ along with buttermilk and rice.

Yakshagana artistes Vidya Kolyuru, Kannadadikatte and Tejomaya were felicitated on the occasion.

Dr K Chinnappa Gowda, former vice chancellor of Folklore University, Haveri; Sridhar, deputy general manager in Vijaya Bank; Prasanna, executive director of Pilikula Nisargadhama; and N G Mohan, governing council member of the Nisargadhama, were present.
