puliyogare recipepuliyogare recipe | puliyogare gojju | tamarind rice – karnataka style with step by step photo and video recipe. traditional rice-based recipes are an integral part of south indian cuisine. each state of south india has its own unique traditional and authentic recipe depending upon the geography. one such flavoured and a traditional rice-based recipe is puliyogare recipe made with spiced tamarind extract.

i have already posted the other 2 states variation of this recipe, i.e pulihora and puliyodharai recipe which are an equally flavoured and easy recipe. but this recipe is unique as it is made from tamarind concentrate which is also known as gojju in kannada. unlike the other 2 variations, gojju is pre-made and then mixed with cooked rice and served. moreover, the tamarind extract is spiced with whole dry spices, jaggery and salt and thus making a combination of flavour and taste. i personally make this gojju extract and refrigerate it so that i can use it whenever required. most of the time i end up making this recipe for morning breakfast or lunch box with leftover rice. but certainly, you do not need any reasons for it.

furthermore, some easy and important tips suggestions and variations for this puliyogare recipe. firstly, it might be a daunting task to make both the gojju extract and also to make the puliyogare recipe. hence i would recommend to make gojju well ahead in advance or overnight and mix it with rice whenever you wish to make rice. secondly, store the extract in a dry warm place in an airtight container for longer shelf life. alternatively, you can also store it in the fridge and extend it shelf life. lastly, use dry and moist free cooked rice for this recipe. ideally, leftover rice is best for this recipe as it does not have moisture and gels well with tamarind extract.

finally, i would like to highlight my other indian rice based recipes collection with this post of puliyogare recipe. it includes recipes like cabbage rice, pudina rice, coriander rice, veg tehri, curry leaves rice, ghee rice, vegetable rice and beetroot rice. in addition, do visit my other related and popular recipes collection like,
