PULI MILAGAI RECIPE | SIDE DISH FOR IDLI|DOSA

Green chilies cooked in tamarind gravy

Puli Milagai is a spicy side dish which my mom makes as side dish for dosa. Mostly this pulimilagai will taste awesome for the dosa which is made from unfermented dosa batter. We call it as “puliya dosai”. And also it is a best combo for curd rice too.

I have never tried pulimilagai at home , when my mom was here last week, she loved the chilies which we get here and wanted to make it. So i just took my camera and just clicked the pictures without taking any effort!!. So here goes the recipe of pulimilagai made by my mom.

GREEN CHILIES 25-30 NO
TAMARIND EXTRACT 2 CUPS
SALT AS NEEDED
TURMERIC POWDER 1/4 TSP
ASAFOETIDA A PINCH
JAGGERY 2 TBLSP
SESAME OIL 2 TBLSP
MUSTARD SEEDS 1/4 TSP

  • Take extract from a lemon size of tamarind . I used the 2 tsp of readymade tamarind paste .

  • In a pan add oil and throw in the mustard seeds. When it splutters add the chopped green chilies and saute till it becomes light brown in color.
  • Be careful at this stage. Keep your Kitchen windows open and use the electric chimney in the kitchen. Stay slightly away from the gas stove as the chili may splutter. Keep the flame in medium.

  • When it is is done, slowly add the tamarind extract and add salt, jaggery ,asafoetida and turmeric powder. The addition of jaggery is to balance the spice.

  • Let this mixture boil in a medium flame for 12 to 15 minutes.
  • My mom always makes it in a thin consistency, but if you want it little thick just boil it for few more minutes.
  • Serve with idli | dosa | curd rice.

Note:

  • Add little extra  jaggery  if the chilies are very hot.
  • This can be stored in the refrigerator, in a clean ,dry container for a week..

  26. Hi Jayshree, Add some ginger to it and it is called 'Puli inji' in Kerla. Ginger gives a nice aroma and lovely flavour to it.
