Puli koozh recipe, how to make puli koozh

Puli koozh is a tangy breakfast, dinner made with rice, tamarind as main ingredients. Quick and easy to prepare puli koozh. Some call it as puli upma too.
Amma makes koozh for breakfast very often. Because my bro loves koozh, all sort of koozhs like mor koozh, puli koozh or plain koozh. I was not a big fan, even now not very much, upma fan forever 🤩

Whenever the verum arisi dosa batter is leftover, then amma quickly makes koozh with coconut oil and serves as evening snack for us. I have already posted mor koozh, with millets, thought of posting puli koozh the way amma makes. I have used idli rice, it gives really tasty results. You can also use other eating rice/ raw rice.
After long time I had puli koozh and loved the vazhuk vazhuk koozh that went inside throat like halwa, even I gave some to Vj, he too loved koozh. Puli koozh is also called as puli upma or kali.

  • You can mix tamarind juice, water, salt, turmeric and the ground rice together well and add after tempering. This will prevent lump formation for beginners.
