Puliyogare which is also called as puliyodarai or pulisatham in Tamilnadu has lots of variations in preparation and also the taste differs according to each states. This style is my way of puliyogare which I usually prepare for my kid with less chillies and generous amount of peanuts. The addition of ground peanuts makes the rice tasty and also healthy. Since the quantity of chillis given in this recipe is kid's friendly, increase the quantity according to your taste buds.
