puliyogare recipe      

My version,I learnt from my mom...I have always been with her in kitchen and watched her making this for gazillion timesBatting Eyelashes. 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 partTongue.
For Puliyogare,we make pulikaichal in advance and can store for long time,say a week,even no need for refrigeration!!Drooling
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! Love Struck
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!Island with a palm tree
I dint took step wise picture that time,so excuse me...Winking

Everybody,including my friends liked very much ! So here's the recipe,of pulikaichal!

Puliyogare / tamarind rice recipe With Pulikaichal

Indian Lunch
Prep Time: 15 mins    |  Cook time: 25 mins    Makes: Enough for mixing 4 cups of rice

Ingredients

Tamarind  1 big lemon sized 
Turmeric  1/4 tsp 
Asafetida  1/4 tsp 
Jaggery/sugar  1/2 tsp 
Salt,water  As needed 
Curry leaves  1 sprig 
Peanuts  1 fist full 

To Temper:

Mustard 1 tblsp
Red chillies 10-15
Urad dal 4 tblsp
Channa dal 3 tblsp
Asafetida 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves 2 sprigs
Sesame oil & cooking oil 5 tblsp

To Roast and grind:

Channa dal 2 tblsp
Red chillies 4 nos
Fenugreek seeds/vendhayam 3/4 tsp
Urad dal 1 tsp
Pepper(optional) 1 tsp

Method:

  1. Extract tamarind juice from the tamarind by soaking in warm water for half-an-hour or by your way of extraction. (My way is here: Usually if too much tamarind to extract means,its difficult for me ...so, I will pressure cook tamarind with little water,for a whistle and cool it down and after it cools down I add water,mash well with my hands and extract the juice using a strainer. All the pulp comes out with an ease leaving behind only the fibre part!!Cool)Keep aside.1-puli
  2. Roast all the ingredients under the To roast and grind table with a teaspoon of oil,to golden brown and powder it and keep aside. 2-pulikaichal
  3. Heat a heavy bottomed vessel/Kadai  with oil and add the ingredients under to temper table in order. Then add the tamarind extract, turmeric, salt, curry leaves and asafoetida(curry leaves and asafeotida-here we are adding raw). Add enough water,it has to boil for long time so let the consistency be thin like rasam.3-pulikaichal
  4. After you boil for some 15-20 minutes,the volume gets reduced by half and at this stage,add jaggery and the roast&ground powder. Now again boil for 2 more minutes and you may see the mixture getting thicker. Now boil more time to get a thick paste and switch of the gas(takes less time after adding the powder,so keep an eye) Mean while, Dry roast Peanuts till nice aroma comes(golden brown)and remove the skin after it cools down and keep aside.4-pulikaichal
  5. Lastly after removing from fire,add the roasted peanuts and mix well. Cool down and store in a clean container.Cook rice(basmati or long grained variety)with 1:2, rice:water ratio. Cool down completely,with added 2-3 tsps. of sesame oil. Add the pulikaichal how much ever needed and adjust according to your taste.Add salt if only needed.5-pulikaichal
Notes:
  • Asafoetida and peanuts are main ingredients for enhancing the flavor of puliyogare. So don't avoid/ be stingy in adding.
  • Add sesame oil when mixing the rice,because it neutralizes the side effects of eating too much tamarind.
  • After mixing with rice give atleast half-an-hour standing time!
  • If you are carrying the rice for a long day trip,then never use your hands to touch the rice,always use a ladle.
  • You can add torn fresh curry leaves when you mix with rice, which will give extra flavour!

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.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I have tried this recipe of yours so many times and honestly, people love it...My family, friends and colleagues say it tastes better than the mix you get in the market. People have actually requested me to make puliyogare and bring to work because they love it so much. I have a large number of people asking me for this recipe. It's a truly amazing recipe.

    ReplyDelete
  70. wow, good that im seeing this roast and grind thing in your blog.ppl generally avoid it.they simply mix pulikaichal with rice and call it puliyogare.generally mom puts sesame seeds also,in roasting and grinding to be added to puliyogare,after everything is done,like u can just make pulikaichal avoiding the mixture.after you mix rice,peanuts,and the end u can add the mixture
