PULI INJI RECIPE

When i posted the recipe of Puli Milagai few weeks back, a few readers sent me the request for puli inji recipe. Though my mom makes puli inji at home being a ardent hater of Ginger, i somehow postponed to make puli inji. But recently when i tasted this in my friend’s place i somehow liked the taste and decided to make puli inji and post the recipe. Normally it is one of the dish made in Onam Sadhya Menu.

  31. Nice recipe, thanks.
    Should this be refrigerated ? I tried this, but after keeping in fridge for about a month and using it occasionally, found a white layer of 'poonjai' on the surface. How can I avoid this ?

    1. Yes it has to be refrigerated if using for long time. But to avoid fungus formation, mix this well with a spoon once a week with a dry spoon.
