Tamarind Pulihora with Tamarind Paste

Well, did anybody want to have pulihora but got tired of the long procedure especially for making tamarind pulihora. Well this should give you a boost to make more tamarind pulihora and sweetly in less than 5 minutes ...... can't believe, read on the recipe:
Cooked Rice
Tamarind Paste
Green Chillies
Red chillies
Chana dal
Mustard seeds
Asafoetida (hing)
Peanuts (can avoid if you have any allergies)
Salt to taste

Method of preparation
Spread the cooked rice in a wide pan/dish. This helps rice to cool down in hurry and also to mix the rice nicely without falling out of dish. Now take a small pan and start preparing the Popu(Tadka). Add oil and let it heat. ( I used Olive Oil but if you want better taste, try it out with peanut oil). Add mustard seeds, and let it splutter. Once they are ready, add little Jeera, asafoetida, chana dal and both chillies. Add peanuts, turmeric to above. Once the peanuts are nicely roasted along with the chillies, add Salt to it and the tamarind paste. Cook for almost less than a minute and turn off. Let the pan be on the stove for one more minute (after turning off, the heat of the oil is sufficiant to cook the tamarind at this point).
 Now  add the tamarind to the spread out rice. Mix the rice and mixture nicely with hand so that all the rice grains are covered with the mixture.
 Your tamarind rice is ready to serve or eat. You can add some coriander leaves, fried cashews to make it look nice :). enjoy!!!.
