I got this recipe from one of my friend who is in Bangalore. Karnataka Tamarind Rice is a slight variation from the normal and traditional tamarind rice. The main difference is the powder we prepare and also the grated coconut. We can serve karnataka tamarind rice with any fried vegetable or a sutta appalam.

There are many other variations in making the Pulikachal / Puliyodharai Rice. Some of the popular puliyodharai/pulihora rice recipes are given in the link below.
