Puliyodarai (or) Puli sadam is one of the famous and fabulous rice dish prepared in South india. In temple's, after the ritual worship, all the devotees are served with this rice as prasadam. The taste and the aroma is definitely unique from the way we prepare at home, but somehow I have managed to come near to that recipe.

Vatral Kuzhambu | Vatha Kuzhambu ( with Manathakkali and Sundakkai vatrals)
Vatral Kuzhambu is an authentic South Indian recipe. This is a tangy and delicious gravy with vatral cooked in tamarind extract blended with the spice of sambar powder. Vatrals are nothing but Sun Dried Vegetables. There are many kinds of vatrals, but the ones most commonly used are Sundakkai and Manathakkali (I used both for this recipe). Serve this kuzhambu with rice and Sutta Appalam.
