Puliogare

Puliogare is all time favorite variety rice for almost all of us. Each of us have our style of preparing. And every recipe tastes great only for this type of rice. Just the combination of chilli with tamarind paste and seasoned with salt tastes great. Other additions to it make it just wonderful, and sometimes wonderful for many days to store them!

You need

1 tsp roasted coriander powder
1/4 tsp roasted fenugreek seeds
few curry leaves

Then to it add the powdered mixture, roasted pea nuts, roasted curry leaves and roasted cashews(optional). Check for salt and add if required. Serve this with nice Sabudana vadam or papad or even potato chips goes great with it.
This can be served with cucumber raita. Chop a cucumber and to it add a cup of yogurt. Tamper Mustard seeds with a spoon of oil and add to the raita. Season with salt and serve with Tamarind rice.
