Semiya Puliyogare

Iyengar Puliyogare is very popular in Karnataka. Puliyogare is a must have on religious ceremonies and festivals. It’s considered as auspicious and is even served as prasad in temples.

Karnataka style Iyengar puliyogare is quite different from pulihora or Tamarind rice from other South Indian states . What makes this Puliyogare different is the use of Puliyogare Gojju / Masala Paste because it’s one of the most important key in this recipe. I have shared Puliyogare Gojju / Pulihora Masala Paste recipe , you can refer the post for the same. Or else you can even get MTR Puliyogare Mix from stores. There is nothing much about this recipe , it’s basically a tempered rice which inherits its sour taste from Tamarind.

Main ingredient to prepare Puliyogare is Rice or Barnyard Millet (Samvat ke chawal) . But I prepared the same with vermicelli for my evening tiffin . Prepare Puliyogare with rice , then certainly it becomes one of the best lunch box recipe. Puliyogare and curd rice goes well hand in hand. So do pack curd rice along with Puliyogare for lunch box.

If you want to try South Indian Breakfast / Tiffin , then try making this Semiya Puliyogare for evening coffee . Its sweet ,spice and sour taste leaves you asking for more . Gojju Avalakki |Spicy Tangy Poha , is almost a similar kind of recipe which can also be prepared with Puliyogare Masala Paste.
