    Method

    Heat oil and add the ingredients mentioned under seasoning. You can remove red chilli and then add back to the oil to prevent it from getting burnt.

    When dal turns golden brown, add the thick tamarind extract, salt and let it boil on medium flame.

    Switch off when it thickens and oil oozes out.

    For mixing the rice

    Spread the rice on a plate to cool. When it is warm, add 2 tsp sesame seed oil and 1/2 tsp turmeric powder and mix it gently without breaking the rice.

    Once it cools, add needed spice powder, tamarind paste and mix the rice gently. Adjust spice powder and tamarind paste according to your taste.

    Delicious Tamarind rice or Puliyodarai is ready to be served. We enjoyed Puliyodarai with vadams and appalam.

    Note -

    You can add less or more spice powder according to how hot you want the rice to be.

    Similarly, you can add less or more tamarind paste according to how sour you want the rice to be. Adjust as per your preferences.

    You can store the paste in the refrigerator for 7-10 days and use it when required.
