puliyotharai is the temple prashadam in most of the temple.They usually give very little amount,but it will be very tasty.My mom usually makes this puliyotharai,when we are goin out of town.You know we dont even need to tell to our neighbours that we are goin out of town,they itselg will assume we will be goin out of town.Even our dog shiny(pomeranian) knows that we are goin out of town by showing his sad face.My mom made puliyotharai for my baby shower party it was the super dooper hit.So I asked my mom for the exact recppie and I tried it here,but I didnt get the exact taste of my mom,but it was good.
