Pulihora is a must dish in every south Indian vegetarian families ,during festivals and we commonly made during saturdays to offer prasad to GOD. There are different types of pulihora we make using tamarind pulp, lemon, mango and citric acid  {nimmauppu} .  We andhrites make pulihora for every occasion and  recently when I went to srirangam { a place in tamilnadu} they offered us prasadam which is entirely different with our pulihora . They used unique spices and I liked the pepper flavor on pulihora and when I came back my kids instisted me to do Iyengar style pulihora. Usually we make with tamarind pulp and give temper and mix rice with them, but whereas Tamilians use pulidorai powder in there pulihora .
