Wow! I can smell it, Anu. This is my all time fav.

Sometimes when you do not have the mood to eat anything, just dreaming abt puliyodharai serves as an appetizer.

Hi Anu,

Now I knew how Puliogare Mix is prepared in some parts. Actually I went to satyanarayana puja, one of the Aunty made this mix and she gave it to host, she said we just have to mix it with rice. I was intrigued what was in there. Thanks to you……… I will book mark this recipe Anu.
