Puliodharai is an all time favorite in my home.When ever we came to visit our parents , we would ask my mom to prepare Puliodharai she would just smile and ask us if didn't want any thing special.
Last month One of our friends invited us to home for Sathyanarayana puja. After the puja they served this Pulihora. It was less spicy & different from the one I have always had.By the end of the meall the serving dish was compleately clean, so do i need to add that it was yummy?
I got the recipe from her and made it at home.
2 Cups Cooked White Rice
2 Tbsp Pulihora Paste
3 Tbsp Gingily oil
4 Nos Dry red chilly
1 Sprig Curry leaves
1 Tbsp Channa dal
2 Tbsp Ground Nuts
1 Tsp Mustard seeds and urad dal
Salt to taste.
Heat 1 Tbsp oil in a kadai and add groundnuts , channa dal, broken Red chilly, urad dal , mustard seeds and curry leaves.
When the mustard seeds pop and the ground nuts are brown pour the oil in the rice.
Add salt and the pulihora paste to rice and mix throughly adding the remainder of the oil.
