Puliyogare Recipe | Puli sadam

Puliyogare and curd rice… yummy combo!! I love puliyogare but I dont like the instant mix. Nothing like preparing the puliyogare paste at home!! I usually do the jiffy pulikachal gojju. Here is another version of preparing puliyogare paste. I love both the versions 🙂

Mustard seeds: 1 tsp
Methi seeds: ½ tsp
Curry leaves: few
Roasted peanuts: handful (optional)
Cashew nuts: few (optional )
Sesame seeds: 2 tsp
Grated coconut: 4 tbsp

  • Soak the tamarind in 1.5 cups of hot water and sqeeze the extract.
  • Meanwhile dry fry seasame seeds and grated coconut.
  • Roast the following ingredients in 1 tsp of oil and powder them along with roasted sesame seeds – coconut mixture.
    • 3 tsp of gram dal
    • 3 tsp of urad dal

  • Add the tamarind extract, salt and turmeric and allow it to boil.

  • Temper the nuts and add them to the boiling mixture.
  • When the mixture reaches paste/jam consistency, remove it from the stove top.
  • The puliyogare paste / pulikachal gojju is ready 🙂

Preparation of Puliyogare / Pulisadam:

  • Cook rice such that the grains are separate.
  • Add the puliyogare paste /pulikachal gojju, 2-3 tsp of raw gingelly oil (gives nice aroma and taste) and curry leaves with rice and mix very well.
  • Serve puliyogare with appalams/vadams 🙂

PS: Amount of puliyogare paste that is added to the rice depends on personal taste. Ensure that you add enough paste so that the it mixes well with the rice.
