Tamarind Rice ( For the Potluck Party )

Today is again that day of the month when we recreate our partners dish for the potluck-party-cyber-style .

This month I was paired with Pradnya of  pranuvisworld and got a chance to make one of the most popular dish of  South i.e Tamarind Rice also known as Puliyogare.

 So on an auspicious day like Krishnashtami I got a chance to post this most popular prasadam to be offered to the Lord .

 So off to this yummy recipe :






Ingredients :

2 cups....................... boiled cooked rice
1tbsp.........................tamarind soak in 1/4 cup warm water
1/2 tsp......................mustard seeds
1 pinch....................asefoetida
1/2 tsp....................chana daal
1/2 tsp....................urad daal
1/4 tsp....................methi seeds ( fenugreek)
few........................curry leaves
1/2 tsp...................turmeric powder
2 .........................green chillies ( slit in two )
2.........................dry chillies ( broken in pieces)
2 tbsp..................groundnuts
2 tbsp..................coconut oil ( can use any other oil too)
salt 

Method :

Heat 6 cups water  and when it starts boiling add the washed rice .

Cook for 10 to 12 minutes till the rice is just done and drain the water out.

Keep the rice aside.

Now extract tamarind pulp and strain it to remove the fibers.

Heat coconut oil in a pan and add mustard seeds, chana daal, urad daal and methi seeds.

When they crackle add green and red chillies, curry leaves and asefoetida .

Then add the groundnuts and saute well.

Now add turmeric powder , tamarind pulp and salt and saute well till oil separates.

In the end add the boiled rice and mix well.

Cook with covered lid for 5 mintues.

Serve it with a pickle or raita of your choice or even plain.
