Thinking of puliyogare reminds me about my friend eshu, I have mentioned about her in my lemon rice recipe post..She loves lemon rice, puliyogare a lot, she can eat it all day…So I dedicate this recipe to her…I know she will like this a lot..
Now talking about puliyogare..It is my favorite too..Amma makes it often for lunch and what she makes to accompany this is some lovely potato roast and papad..You can check here for the recipe of my favorite potato roast..
I have given step by step recipe for puliyogare kulambu which you can store it fridge for a couple of weeks..I think you can store more than that, but in our house it won’t last that long..If you have pulikaichal in your fridge then making puliyogare is a breeze..This can be put in lunch box for kids they will surely love it..
So hope you like it and let me know what you think..Hope you like it and let me know what you think..I am sending this recipe to BM Day 4 under the theme Seven Days of Rice…
