Puliyogare Mix | Puliyogare Gojju

Puliyogare is a rice preparation with tamarind. This dish is popular in Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh. It is known by other names such as puliyodharai, puli sadam, pulihora.

I feel so good to make puliyogere/taramind rice with homemade gojju/mix as you know what ingredients goes into gojju preparation. The taste is very similar to that of store bought puliyogere mix.

You can make the mix in bulk and refrigerate in an air tight container.

10. Turmeric powder - 1/2 teaspoon
