BM #114 Week 3 day 1 - 

This week I shall continue with the year-long theme of A-Z Andhra Dishes. This month the starting letters of the recipes are P,Q and R.

When I was listing the recipes with P, my mind wouldn't go past Pulihora. So I thought to showcase the Pulihora Readymade mix which has made life easy for us, the pulihora lovers. 

I stick to the traditional version for the most part, especially during the festival season. But this quick fix option is a great time saver the time-crunch moments.

Please note that this is not a paid post.

Ingredients - 

Rice 1 1/2 cups 
Readymade Pulihora Mix (I used MTR brand) 3 Tbsp
*Salt adjust as needed
Seasoning (Sesame Oil 4 Tbsp, Mustard Seeds 1/2 tsp, Peanuts handful, Chana Dal 1 Tbsp, Urad Dal 1 tsp, Curry leaves few, Red Chilies 1-2)

* There is salt in the readymade mix but we feel that about a teaspoon of salt is needed for our taste for the above quantity of rice

Method Of Preparation -

Wash and cook rice in any method. Make sure the rice grains are separate.

Spread the rice to cool in a wide plate. 

In a heated pan, add oil and the rest of the seasoning one by one. After the mustard seeds pop, peanuts are roasted and the dals are brown, reduce the heat.

Add the readymade mix and salt. Give it a quick mix and add the cooked rice.

Mix well and remove from heat. It is ready to be served.

Optional - Cover and allow the flavors to blend. Serve warm after about 10-15 minutes.


Preparation Time 10 minutes (if the rice is cooked ahead)
Serves 3-4

  3. The puliogarai (as we call it) looks perfectly made ! Each rice is individually fluffed out. And the aroma of the MTR mix must be divine !
