Instant Pulihora / Puliogare !!!

Pulihora is a must made dish on all the auspicious n festive days !!! 
Remember my mom preparing the mix a day before n storing in the fridge so that she can prepare pulihora the next day ...
Even i used to follow the same until i tried out with tamarind paste...
The store bought mix were easy to prepare but was not satisfied with its taste ..but this method gives me cent percent results...moreover no prep work needed..
All u need is store bought Tamarind paste, i used Priya brand as the color n taste come out to perfection !!!

  • 3 tbsp oil
  • 2 tsp Urad dal
  • 1 tbsp chana dal
  • 2 dry red chillies
  • 2 green chillies slit
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1/4 tsp Methi / fenugreek seeds
  • 2 tbsp raw / roasted peanuts( i used roasted )
  • 1/8 tsp turmeric
  • A pinch asoefetida / hing
  • A sprig curry leaves ( i did not add as i had none left ...)
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin seeds
  • 1/2tsp Mustard seeds
  • 1 tbsp  coriander powder (optional )
