ABOUT Instant Pulihora / Puliogare !!! RECIPE

Pulihora is a must made dish on all the auspicious and festive days !!!  My mother used to prepare the mix a day before and store in the fridge so that she can prepare pulihora the next day. Even i used to follow the same until i tried out with tamarind paste. The store bought mix is easy to prepare but does not satisfy you with the taste.but this method gives me cent percent results, with no time waste in preparations. All you need is store bought Tamarind paste, I used Priya tamarind as the color and taste is perfect.
