    Wanna try this …but how do I use tamarind extract that’s already ready made? What are the proportions for it and do I need to simmer that ?

    1. Mullai

      Just my 2 cents, pulihora taste better when made with fresh tamarind and store bought paste doesn’t work good. If no option, then try 1 tbsp tamarind paste diluted with little water, add the talimpu to the paste and simmer for few a couple of minutes just enough to separate the oil. No need to simmer for long time as its already concentrated. Thanks.

    Hi Mullai, Wonderful recipe. I am planning for an outdoor picnic. So can I mix this with rice (also lemon rice), freeze it and take it with me? Will this remain still fit to eat at this point of time in the year(I stay in NJ!!!) The problem is I dont have a chiller box and we have to stay the whole day outside and use this for night. I can reheat it once I reach the hotel. I would love to have your word of advice on this plan since I have to give this for my kid as well. Thanks in advance!!!

    Hi Mullai,

    Need one clarification.You have said to sprinkle turmeric in rice.Won’t there be any raw smell from the turmeric powder?

      I tried this tamarind rice as per Mullai mam’s instruction. Believe me, it came out extremely well. We all enjoyed and for the first time Puliyodarai was a big hit in our house is only due to Mullai mam’s recipe.

      I too sprinkled turmeric powder but there was no raw smell.

      Just give a try and enjoy!!

    I tried this yesterday together with potato masala, it turn out very well and I’m going to do this frequent now onwards.

    You can also add abit of rice to give crispy taste here and there when you eat pulihora. just fry a bit of rice without oil and add it last to pulihora and mix it.

    Thanks and regards,
