PULIYOGARE (PULIHORA)

Ahaha.... this is very yummy rice dish, which is very favourite and very special andhra dish. Especially this is most favourite to my family members. Here is the recipe:


Pulihora:
Prep time : 20 minutes (for preparation of tamarind pulp)
Cooking time : 45 minutes (to cook the rice and for tempering)
Serves : 3
Cuisine : Andhra

Ingredients:
4 cups cooked rice (basmati or sonamasoori)
4 or 5 tbsp thick tamarind pulp
salt as per taste

For tempering:
4 tbsp oil
1 tsp jeera
1 tsp mustards
few curry leaves
2 dry red chillies
2 green chillies (slit them length wise)
1 tsp chanadal
3 tbsp groundnuts
a big pinch of hing
a big pinch of turmeric powder

Method:
1. Before 1 hour only cook the rice, take it into a wide vessel and let it cool completely.

2. Keep the tempering with oil, jeera, mustards, red chillies, green chillies, chanadal, groundnuts, curry leaves, hing and turmeric powder and keep aside.

3. First mix tamarind pulp and salt with rice gently. Adjust pulp according to your likes of sour taste. After that add above tempering to the mixed tamarind rice, again mix gently.


4. Adjust the salt and serve.

Note : 1. Take care about the frying of chanadal and groundnuts. They should not burn.

2. You can prepare tamarind pulp at a time and store in a bottle and keep in the freezer. But if you want to keep like that some process will be there. You should follow that. Very soon I will post that tamarind pulp proceadure, which is very useful for working ladies as well as home makers too.

  8. love the tamarind rice. Have a quick question though... isnt the basmati flavour a little overpowering for all the other spices. Does the flavour of basmati and all the spices blend well ? I have never tried it with basmati, thats why Im asking...

  10. @Hi Sia, you are most welcome as always. Thanks for your lovely words.

    @Hi Asha, Try it and let me know. Thanks a lot.

    @Hi Hima, thanks dear.

    @Hi Bee, here I used sona masoori rice only. Some times i will use basmati too. But when you are using basmati, you should be careful about using the water to cook the rice, use less water quantity compare to sonamasoori. Then each grain will separate and its easy to prepare pulihora with that rice. As sonamasoori rice, basmati rice will also gives the same taste. No difference at all. I hope this information will helps you. If not don't hesitate to ask me. Thanks dear.

    @Hi Bee, use the homemade tamarind pulp to do the pulihora. That taste will be awesome and surely you can enjoy a lot. Try it and let me know. Very soon I will post the preparation of tamarind pulp. You can store it for minimum 2 months. Once again thanks dear.
