anyway, before wrapping up the post, some tips, suggestions and variations for a perfect pachi pulusu recipe. firstly, the recipe is generally served as side to hot steamed rice. having said that it is not just limited for it. you can serve it as chilled beverage on a hot and humid day. secondly, i have extracted the tamarind juice by soaking the dry tamarind in hot water. once it is soaked, it is then squeezed to release the tamarind extract. however, if you find this step, time-consuming, you can use store-bought tamarind pulp and dilute it to the desired thickness. lastly, as i mentioned earlier, you can serve it as beverage during summer. you may have to serve it chilled with some ice cubes.
