My version,I learnt from my mom...I have always been with her in kitchen and watched her making this for gazillion times. This is the perfect recipe that clicked to me...though I have tried many. I somehow don't like coriander seeds(smell) in the powder part.
For Puliyogare,we make pulikaichal in advance and can store for long time,say a week,even no need for refrigeration!!
Whenever we go for a day's picnic,or we travel,my mom makes puliyogare and packs in banana leaf.And the moment we open for our lunch,it tastes heavenly!
A week back when we went to Phuket, even I made this pulikaichal and carried in a container and as we were staying in a villa,we were able to cook rice,so we made tamarind rice and carried for a trip within the Island!
Everybody,including my friends liked very much ! So here's the recipe,of pulikaichal!
Warning:This puliyogare will be hot and not sweet like the puliyogare mix we get readymade!! You can keep the pulikaichal for 15-20 days in fridge and use when ever you want,even stays good when kept out for a week. The tamarind rice even can be carried when you are in travel, it will keep good for long time.
I am very glad to send this pulikaichal recipe to Lakshmi's event Meals On Wheels...
