Kovil Puliyodharai / Puliyogare / Tamarind rice

Puliyodharai,puliyogare or tamarind rice is a very famous variety rice in southern part of  India.It is served as a main course for many auspicious gatherings.The dish has its name ,because tamarind juice is used to prepare.The mix can be prepared in advance and stored atleast for 2 weeks in fridge.We can also call it as a batchelor's delight,as it can be prepared in no time,if you have the mix.My love for puliyodharai,started in my child hood days.Where we used to go to temple during "Margazhi" - a sacred month, this is offered as a prasad.This is my friend's recipe. .U will fell in love immediately , when u try this.Give it a try ......
