In Andhra recipes Rice varieties


Here comes the festive delight ~ Andhra Pulihora (Tamarind rice) all the way from Andhra. There are many variations like mango pulihora, sesame seeds pulihora, sweet pulihora etc and etc. The list goes unending. I will be sharing all those delicacies within a short while. So stay tuned.
Rice - 1 glass
Water -2 glasses
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 1 spoon
Urad dal- 2 spoons
Chana dal- 2 spoons
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Ground nuts- 2 spoons
Cashew nuts - handful
dry red chillies- 4
Green chillie -4 halved
Curry leaves- 1 stem
Salt - as per taste
Sugar - a pinch
Tamarind juice- 3 tsps (adjust if required)
Oil- 4 tbsps
For taste (Powder)
Sesame seeds- 2 tbsps
Dry red chillies- 2-3
Powder- Dry roast sesame seeds and dry red chillies until golden brown in colour. Allow it to cool and then grind into fine powder.
Wash and pressure cook rice(1 glass rice + 2 glasses of water) by adding turmeric powder and oil. Once the rice is cooked keep it aside. Now take a kadhai an heat oil in it. Fry mustard seeds, chana dal, urad dal, ground nuts, cashew nuts, dried red chillies, green chillies and curry leaves. Once they are fried add tamarind pulp, sugar and cook for 5 mins. Keep stirring on and off. When oil floats on top add salt. Now add cooked rice and mix all the ingredients well and finally add sesame seeds powder. Mix once again. Adjust salt if required(use salt water intead of using salt directly). Transfer the contents into a sewrving bowl and serve.
