Generally, preparing Puliyodharai is very time-consuming. No need to stand for hours to make Puliyodharai anymore. It can be made in very few seconds with this Instant Puliyodharai mix. And I am going to show you how to make Puliyodharai Idiyappam with this instant Puliyodharai mix.

Puliyodharai tastes best when had 2-3 hours later than the time of preparation. It is the most highly sorted out picnic/ travel meal among the South-Indians as it becomes tastier as the sour tamarind flavor deepens with time so it is a fantastic lunch box dish also.

This makes 250 gms of Puliyodharai Mix. Pulikachal mix generally stays good upto a month but you can store this upto 3 months in an air-tight container in the refrigerator.
