PEPPER PULIYODHARAI | MILAGU PULIYODHARAI

Print Friendly and PDF
Yum

pepper puli sadham
I wanted to try this recipe for long time.. I usually follow my MIL’s method for making tamarind rice / puliyodharai .. It comes out very well. This time i tried the same recipe with pepper .As i mentioned in my pepper idli post , my hubby is very much fond of pepper dishes.. So i tried this pepper puliogare on my own.. It came out very well. It had a nice flavour of pepper in it. I packed it for my hubby’s lunch box. He liked it very much.. There is no much difference in the method and the ingredients..U can prepare the paste the previous night and make the rice the next day. Adjust the amount of pepper powder based on ur taste.This paste stays well for 1 week even without refrigeration.Also i feel for puliyodharai , mixing the paste in raw rice or boiled rice tastes well more than basmati.Add few tsps of sesame oil / gingely oil while mixing the rice & paste to get the additional flavour and taste..As we all know , this rice is apt for travel too..
