Family behind this Pickle experience:
This traditional Bellam Pacchi Avakaya pickle has been especially handmade by Madhuri Saripalle & family, and is inspired by the traditions of the Vedula & Saripalle family of Anakapalle in Andhra Pradesh. For more information on the family food artisans please read the FAMILY MADE page.


History of this product experience:
A group of Brahmins migrated from Saurashtra during 1300–1400 AD to south India and settled on the banks of River Kaveri in Tamil Nadu and adopted Tamil language. Around 1700 AD, some of these Brahmins travelled northwards to the River Godavari basin in coastal Andhra Pradesh and came to be called “Dravida” Brahmins, a subsect of the Vaidiki Brahmins. They adopted the Telugu language and integrated with the local Telugu-speaking people.

This Bellam Pacchi Avakaya Mango pickle recipe was perfected by Smt Jnanaprasoonambika of the Saripalle/Vedula family traditions of Anakapalle. Her daughter Manjula Saripalle and granddaughter Madhuri Saripalle dedicate this pickle in her memory.
