I would say my MIL makes the best puliodharai which i’ve tasted so far. Its taste would be equivalent to temple puliogare.(Kovil puliodharai). We are a big fan of her tamarind rice.Yesterday we made this for our trip to tirupathi. It was very flavorful and tasty.Though there are many varieties of pulikachal recipes in this blogosphere ,I wanted to share my version..I’ve tried to give the step by step pictures for beginners & bachelors.Thanks a to ton to my MIL for teaching me this wonderful keeper recipe..Please have a look at the “points to remember “ section before proceeding ..
INGREDIENTS FOR PULIYOGARE PASTE
