Yummy Puliyodare......!

This is first time I am making puliyodare...I have eaten it several times but this is the first chance I got to make it. Was confused how to make it. I have seen people make it with the Readymade powder and have eaten that too.... but let me tell u making it from scratch tastes so much better.Here goes the recipe...and thanx to Hiran akka...(R's cousin...who taught me this recipe....)...

You will need:

Rice - 1 cup
Tamarind paste - 2tbsp
Whole red chilli - 3-4
Curry leaves - 7-8
Green chillies - 2 slit lenghtwise (optional)
Turmeric powder - 1tsp
Roasted salted peanuts - 1 cup
Salt to taste
Oil (preferably gingelly oil) - 2tbsp
Mustard seeds - 2 tsp
Jeera - 1/2 tsp
Asafoetida (hing) - A pinch
Seasame seed powder - 2 tbsp

Method :
Cook the rice seperately in a microwave/pressure cooker or rice cooker. Dont put too much water, the rice shud be seperate.Keep it aside.

Now, in a big pan take some oil and put in some mustard seeds and jeera. Let it splutter well. Add the dried red chillies and the roasted peanuts and mix well. Add the turmeric powder, asafoetida and curry leaves. Mix well till the raw turmeric smell goes off. Now add the tamarind paste to the peanuts and mix well. I use the paste coz its easier to use. You may also soak the tamarind in water and then use it instead of the paste.

Now, to this paste add the cooked rice and mix well and cook covered for 10 minutes. Now add the seasame seed powder to the rice and mix well. Cook for 10 more mins.Your Puliyodare is ready to eat.

Serve hot with chips. Enjoy!
