Tamarind Rice - புளி சாதம்

Instead of mixing the ready made Tamarind Rice Paste sold in the stores, try making this from the scratch. This is more healthier and guaranteed to taste better.

  2. Tamarind - a big lemon size
  3. Methi seeds (Fenugreek) - 1 teaspoon

Add the turmeric powder and pour the tamarind extract. Add salt, the ground methi and asafoetida. Add the curry leaves. Keep stirring. Let the tamarind extract boil in a simmered heat.Keep stirring occasionally. This should be cooking on the stove till it turns out to be thick paste like consistency.
  6. While this is getting ready, cook the rice.
  1. In a deep vessel or a big plate, pour the cooked rice.
  2. Add the now ready 'puli kaichal' and mix it with the rice thoroughly till all the white rice are completely covered.
