Pulihora-Tamarind rice is a delicacy which brings me back to the temples of Andhra.I have been fortunate to visit so many of them down South.
Simple meal of pulihora(tamarind rice),Daddojanam(curd rice), chakkara pongal(sweet pongal made with sugar or jaggery) and laddoo post pooja or havan after naivedyam.
Simple yet the most tastiest.Pulihora or Puliyogare is a common preparation in Andhra,Tamil Nadu and Karnataka.It is a simple rice preparation but full of tangy tamarind flavor and crunch of lentils.
I love the way simple ingredients are used in South India.
The bland rice comes out so beautifully without the addition of too much spices.
Basic ingredients can help you create wonderful meals even in the places where you cannot find too many vegetables.
Tip: You can also use the left over rice with this tamarind mix.
Serve it for brunch or easy dinner.
Vegan and gluten-free and an easy meal when you are hard pressed for time during deadlines.
