Tamarind rice

              Tamarind is a popular rice recipe of the south India. There are so many versions like Kovil puliodhare, karnataka style puliogare which includes coconut, Iyer style, Iyengar style etc., Here I am going to make Iyer style puliodhare. To make this, we will be making gojju or puliodhare paste and then will mix it with rice.
