One of O.C.'s Best Rice Dishes: Puliyogre at Dosa Place
Yesterday, the star rice dish was puliyogre, otherwise known as tamarind rice. Imagine the sweet-sour tang of the fruit, but reduced to manageable hint. Mix with dried chilies. Eat again and again. Repeat. Puliyogre is a regular item on the menu (one that, honestly I haven't asked for in a good year simply because that lunch buffet is so great and filling, but peruse through their dosas if you've yet to visit before graduating to the buffet), but nice to find it on the lunch buffet, ready for its transformation as Indian tacos with the limitless naan.
