Neem flower on Tamil New Year's Day

Today is the New Year for many parts of India: Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Punjab, Bengal, Assam, Odisha, Mizoram etc.

In Tamil Nadu, one of the ways we celebrate the festival is by making a dish with neem flowers.

Vepampoo or neem flower is known for its curative properties and the dish we make with it has all tastes - bitter (neem), sweet (usually jaggery), sour (usually tamarind), spicy (chillies) and salty.
