  • Shruti

    Hi Sailu,
    I have guests coming to my house and I want to prepare 9 rice cooker cups of rice pulihara. can u pls tell me how much amount of tamarind i should use?

    I suggest take 4 large lemon sized tamarind balls and remove extract. Prepare the pulihora mix with spices and do not combine the whole mix into the rice at once. Add little by little, taste and go by instinct. If you feel there is need for more tang, add lemon juice if you run out of pulihora tamarind mix. I cannot give exact measurements. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Stars

    Hi Sailu,
    Everything about your site is amazing! I was surprised to see an email from a family member with Ugadi wishes that has the picture of ‘Ugadi Pachadi’ from your site (the 1st one in this page). Not only are your recipes so popular and relatable but also your photos are getting equal attention. Kudos to you!

    I have always been curious to see how you look. You see, when you know the face behind great works, that sense of inquisitiveness is rested and some kind of peace lingers. But again, this whole thing is like ‘vennello aada pilla’ ๐Ÿ™‚ Sometimes I feel, may be not seeing you will have that punch and better to remain the same way!

    Did you ever have any plans to come to the front of the web page?


    I have no plans so far, Stars. ๐Ÿ™‚
