After tsunamis and depression rains, it seems like Andhra is being swept over by a bout of self-love. Or is it just Hyderabad? Everywhere you turn - there is an Andhra Food Festival - with all the slurpy rasams, spicy puliharas and aromatic red pickles you can eat. But don't go by the undifferentiated naming - each festival will throw exquisite surprises that you have never tasted in your kitchen before, even if you have spent all this life and evey other incarnation in Andhra!
