Puliotharai – South Indian Tamarind Rice is a popular flavored rice, often had in temples.
While in Northern India, they are known for their large varieties of flatbreads, rice is the preferred accompaniment in the South. In India and especially in the South, you will find many varieties of flavored rice including Lemon Rice, Tomato Rice, Cumin Rice, Curry Leaf Rice and this Tamarind Rice.
Like Caribbean people love rice and beans, South Indians love their Rice and Dal. If you are a rice lover as much as I am, try some of these other rice varieties!
