Cooking Directions (serves 4)
Step 1: In a large vessel, add 2 cups cooked rice that has been boiled using slightly less water than normal so the rice stays loose.
Step 2: Add 1 tbsp gingelly oil to the cooked rice and mix well. Allow it to cool. Add 2 tbsp of Thaligai Puli Kachal and mix with the rice carefully so that it has blended in without mashing it. Cover and keep aside for 5-10 minutes so that the rice absorbs the flavor and taste.
Step 3: Serve with vadams or vathal of your choice.
TIP: You can serve puli kachal as an accompaniment with curd rice or roti.
