About Puliodharai Biryani Rice

Puliodharai is a famous South Indian dish! The tangy flavor of tamarind and the aroma of kadi patta is just superb.I am not a South Indian but when i was a kid i used to go to my mom's office sometimes and there was a south Indian aunty and she was my favorite 😀 because whenever i used to come with my mom in her office she used to make this special tamarind rice for me 😉 and i love to go to my mom's office whenever i get a chance 😛 Those days became a sweetest memory for me as she got retired and i got married!But still those tamarind rice was still on my mind and finally i nailed it with the same beautiful flavors and now its my daughter's favorite 🙂 I have served this rice with a flavorful chutney which is little sweet and sour and it is just balancing the taste of sourness of rice with a little sweetness and spiciness of the chutney!
