* Mix it and pour 3/4th of the puli kaaichal that we prepared little by little and mix the rice.

* Also add methi powder and 2 tsp of seasame seed oil and salt if needed and mix all without breaking the rice, so mix it carefully.

* The tasty puli saadham is ready to be served with coconut pieces or coconut chutney or chick peas sundal or potato chips.
