I had some left over rice sitting in my kitchen.Used my grand ma's method and prepared this tamarind rice.It tastes heavenly than the one which we prepare instatantly.The reason is ,tamarind juice is marinated with the left over rice overnight .This makes the rice to absorb the flavors well.So no worries, if u have so much rice left over .

2.Urad dal - 1/2 tp
