A traditional temple dish that is is made with tamarind and rice. To get the real taste of this tamarind rice (Puliyodharai), you have to use only gingelly oil. You can use ground nut with skin or without skin. If you want crispy taste, instead of adding the groundnut while seasoning, you can add when mixing the rice. Instead of ground nut, you can add soaked whole gram (Kondai kadalai) along with the tamarind juice and cook.
