Easy Tamarind Rice / Puliyotharai

Sleeping extra time after turning off the alarm in the morning is a such a comforting thing for me, but which will make me to run and hit the wall after wake up...Yeah i will be having very less time to make lunch and breakfast for Hubby dear, I have few recipes which will come to my rescue at this time....This is one of that type.

This is not the traditional tamarind rice, twisted  as easy method.
This is the one we use to make @ our home for emergency  or immediate lunch box menu.
Very less time consuming recipe, with Till and Peanut, which adds a nice flavour and taste to this recipe...


Tamarind thick paste - 2 tbsp
oil to temper
Salt to taste
Till / Tahini - 1/4 tsp
Peanut - 1 tbsp

To Temper:
Mustard and Urud dal - 1/4 tsp
Red chilly - 2
Jeera - 1/4 tsp
Curry leaves - few
Turmeric powder - 2 pinch

Heat a pan with oil, temper with the ingredients in the list under "To Temper".
Add Peanut and Till seeds.
Wait untill it turns golden color.
Add the Tamarind paste and allow to cook untill the raw smell goes.
Add salt and switch off.
