Kovil Pulingari

Pulingari or Pulungari is a variant from the sambar family. This one is a speciality at my native place. Made during the Navratri festival in the village, it is a unique dish with a special taste – especially when made in the temple during Navratri. This one is divinely tasty, but is distinct from the taste of sambar though.

It uses only a combination of the four veggies – white pumpkin (elavan/safed bhopla), yellow pumpkin (maththan/laal bhopla), raw bananas (vazhakkya/kachcha kela), and elephant foot yam (chenai/suran). Have followed mom’s instructions to the T in this one 🙂 . You can find the recipe here.
