Puliyogare, Karnataka style:

This recipe is traditionally from south India. I am sure most South Indians know the "how to" already.I am going to post it anyway since this would be my version.As you know there are many versions of same for each household!:))

You need:
2 Cups cooked Rice,cooled
1/2 Cup Tamarind Juice
Salt and Sugar to tour taste

TO Roast and Powder:(1st)
2 tbsp Coriander Seeds
1 tsp Cumin Seeds
2-3 Dry Red chillies
1 tsp Mustard Seeds
1 tsp Fenugreek Seeds
2 tsp Chana Dal
1 tsp Urad dal
1 tsp Pepper Corns
1 tsp Urad Dal
1/2 tsp Turmeric
1/4 tsp Asafoetida

To Roast and Powder Separately:(2nd)
1 tbsp Sesame Seeds
2 tbsp Dry Coconut

To Season:
1 tbsp Oil
1/2 tsp Mustard Seeds
1 tsp Chana Dal
2 tbsp Peanuts
1 Dry Red Chiiiy
Few Curry Leaves

How To:

1. First roast and grind the 1st masala and the 2nd, keep separately.
2. Season with mustard etc. and then add Tamarind juice. Simmer until raw smell goes, then add the 1st masala. Cook until thick and oil floats on top.
3. It's time to add the 2nd powdered ingrediants along with salt and sugar. Stir and take it off of the heat to cool a little.
4. Add to the cooled rice by spoonfuls to balance the taste to your liking.Now it's ready to eat! Serve with plain Yogurt and some crisps.

Alternately, you can use any store bought MTR PULIYOGARE POWDER instead of making all those powders.Personally I like to make my own spices.Hope you try my version and enjoy the delicious Puliyogare.

First time I am reading the term 'Puliyogare' instead of usual 'Puliyodarai'. Mine is very similar but I always make gojju in advance and mix it with rice and give oggarane. I add a stick of cinnamon while roasting kari ellu and powder that. I never use MTR powder either. It is not the same.

Hi B, we always say Puliyogare for this dish in Kannada, so I am used to that word. I love this rice though, give it to me anytime, any day! :D
