Puli Avil - Tamarind Avil

This is my favorite. I eat this with a dallop of yogurt. Here is the recipe for puli avil.

  1. Rice Flakes - 1 cup
  2. Tamarind water - to soak rice flakes
  3. Salt to taste
  4. Sesame OIl - 2 tsp
  5. Mustard Seeds - 1/4 tsp
  6. urad dhall - 1/2 tsp
  7. Asafoetida powder - a pinch
  8. Red chillies - 1
  9. Curry Leaves - few
If you are using raw tamarind, then squeeze out the required amount of juice to soak rice flakes. Heat the tamarind water and soak the rice flakes in tamarind water. Add salt to the mixture and cover it with a lid for 10 mts. Drain it after 10 mts. Keep it aside. Take a pan, pre heat sesame oil, add mustard seeds, when it splutters, add urad dhall, asafoetida powder, red chillies and curry leaves and fry it till golden brown. Now add the rice flakes. Mix it well with the lentils. Try this and lemme know the comments.
