Chintapandu Pulihora/Andhra Tamarind Rice

Chintapandu Pulihora/Andhra Tamarind Rice is the 2nd day Neivedyam for Durga Maata.
It's such a comfort food too. Love to have this rice any day. This rice works well for travels and lunch boxes too.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes 
Serves: 2-3


Rice : 1 cup 
Tamarind extract : 2 tbsp ( soak a big lemon size in water for 5 minutes, boil it for 5 minuets and once cooled, get the extract.)
Green chilies: 2 slit into 3 pieces each
Ginger: 1" piece minced
Red chilies: 3
Chana Dal/ Senaga pappu: 2 tsp 
Urad Dal/Minappappu: 2 tsp 
Mustard Seeds/Aavalu: 1tsp
Asafoetida/hing/inguva: 1/2 tsp 
Turmeric: 1/4tsp + 1/2 tsp
Peanuts: 2 tbsp
Curry leaves: 1 sprig


Cook rice, take it out and a tbsp of peanut oil and a 1/4 tsp of turmeric, salt and toss well.
Heat 2 tbsp of peanut oil in a pan and add red chilies, sauté for 30 seconds. Add mustard seeds and all the ingredients one by one. And sauté for 1 minute. Turn off the stove and mix this into rice. 
Enjoy your Pulihora hot or cold.
Pulihora tastes good with plain curd too.
