Andhra Pulihora is loved and enjoyed by everyone at my house . I can always say that this is my fav rice variety. I can go on eating this from morning till night. I am that much hooked to it. Its so tasty and very tempting food. I try making this at least once in 2 weeks. We make this especially on ugadhi festival. We offer this to good. Its very simple to make and needs no big work. Too simple even a 10 yr old can make it in no to my yummy dish.

1. In a pan add oil saute the seasoning mentioned above.Add one by one like mustard,urad,fenugreek,channa dal,dry red chillies,curry leaves,jeera and then peanuts. Fry them well.

2. Now add tamarind pulp paste. Add 1/2 glass water or more according to the consistency required. Let it boil for few mins. To this add hing,turmeric powder and salt. Let it boil for 10 more mins until it thickens and oil oozes out at center.
