Puliyodharai is my all time favourite.I love to eat it for breakfast,lunch and dinner.Puliyodharai with vadam makes a great pair.Mom makes instant puliyodharai which does not take more than 10 minutes and this instant version helps me a lot and I prepare this version often :) Here I am posting the version.
