Atukula Pulihora ~ Tamarind Poha


Atukula Pulihora ~ Tamarind Poha

Ingredients :

Thick Rice Flakes : 1 cup
Tamarind : small lime size ball
Ground nuts : 2 tsp
Cashew nuts : 2 tsp
Mustard Seeds : 1/2 tsp
Chana dal : 1/2 tsp
Urad dal : 1/2 tsp
Turmeric Powder : 1/4 tsp
Oil : 2 tbsp
Salt to taste
Green Chillies : 2 or 3
Red Chillies : 2
Few Curry Leaves
A Pinch of Hing

Method :

Soak the tamarind in water for 10 minutes. Then squeeze the extract out of it and keep it aside. Wash and soak the rice flaks in water for 2 minutes. Strain it to remove all excess water and keep it aside. Heat two table spoons of oil in pan. Add mustard seeds, chana dal, urad dal and groundnuts and fry them. When they start to splutter add hing, curry leaves, chopped green chillies, red chillies and cashew nuts and fry for a few minutes. Now add tamarind extract, salt and turmeric powder. Mix well, cover with a lid and let it cook completely. When the tamarind mixture becomes thick, add soaked rice flaks and mix well. Let it cook for 2 minutes on a medium flame and remove from the flame. Tamarind Poha is ready.
