Puli Upma 2 (pulima)


I finally logged in to my blogger account and thought of editing this post.  I made this pulima yesterday for my dad. . Here is the recipe for making pulima.

  1. Rice flour - 2 cups
  2. Tamarind water - 2 cups
  3. Salt to taste
  4. Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
  5. Sesame oil - 5 tbsp ( or even more)
  6. Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
  7. Urad dhall - 1/2 tsp
  8. Asafoetida powder - a pinch
  9. Curry leaves - few
  10. Red chillies - 2 (acc to taste)
  • First take the rice flour, add salt and turmeric powder to it. 

  • Add required amount of tamarind water (more or less than 2 cups) and make it a smooth paste. 

  • Now pre heat oil, add mustar seeds, when it splutters add urad dhall, red chillies, curry leaves and asafoetida powder and fry it till golden brown. 
  •  Now add the rice flour paste and stir it continuously till the flour fully cooks. 
  • The paste will scramble if its fully cooked. 
  • Reduce the flame and sprinkle a hand full of water and cover it with a lid for 2 mts. 
  •  Again open and stir it. Let it be on the flame for another 2 mts.

This can be a evening tiffin and can be eaten with a dallop of yogurt. This is very easy to make and spicy lovers will love this.
