Puliodarai is a popular South Indian dish made from tamarind and rice.

       Ingredients How to?
    5 Lemon sized tamarind balls
    2 Cups rice
    2 Cups peanut
    5 Red chillies
    2 Green chillies
    4 Inch piece of ginger
    1 tsp Asafoetida
    1 tsp Turmeric
    1 tsp Mustard
    1 tsp Chana daal
    2 tsp Sambar powder
    1/2 Cup curry leaves
    1/2 Cup gingelly/sesame oil
    4 tsp Salt
Soak tamarind in warm water for about 10 minutes.
Pass through a strainer to obtain the pulp.
Boil the rice.
Spread this rice in a large utensil and let it cool.
Take a pan and heat oil in it.
Add mustard, daal, sambar powder, chilles, ginger, asafoetida, tamarind pulp, turmeric and salt.
If the pulp is very thick, add 1/2 cup water.
Bring this mixture to a boil.
Now combine peanuts and curry leaves with it.
When the mixture starts to leave the sides of the pan, remove it from the fire.
Now add this mixture to the rice and mix it gently without crushing the rice.
If it is too dry, add some heated gingelly oil to the rice to separate it.
Now the Puliyo Darai is ready to serve.
