First soak tamarind in hot water. Remove tamarind pulp from it and keep it aside. For aavala masala, make a paste of mustard, black pepper, ginger and little salt and keep aside. Some people think that mustard is spicy. But adding ginger also reduces its pungency. Otherwise it gives a bitter taste. Now wash the rice. Cook it for three whistles with two cups of water for one cup of rice. Wash the rice but do not soak it. Doing this will break the rice. When the rice is hot..that is, when the rice starts to smoke, add turmeric, oil, green chillies, curry powder and salt and keep it aside. 

Light the stove and put a small kadai and heat it by adding two spoons of oil. Then add mustard and fenugreek and roast it. Also add curry powder.. Then add tamarind pulp and cook. If you like, add some grated jaggery and cook the talimpu. If you choose good quality turmeric and tamarind, you will definitely get the taste of temple-made pulihora. After the tamarind is cooked, add the prepared mustard paste and cook it. After that the stove should be stopped. 

Now add this flavoring mixture to the previously prepared rice and mix well. All the flavor of Pulihora lies in mixing it. Now light the stove again and add quarter cup of oil in it add mustard seeds and let it crackle. If you don't apply too much oil.. Pulihora will stick to your mouth and taste less. Sesame oil or groundnut oil enhances the taste of pulahora. After that, add palli, chickpeas and minapappu and fry. Add black pepper and curry leaves.. After frying, add this mixture to the rice prepared with tamarind pulp and mix. Temple Style Pulihora Ready.
