Add the Gongura Masala, turmeric powder, salt to this seasoning and saute for about 8 to 10 minutes on medium heat until it becomes like a pickle like chutney.

  6. Once the Gongura Pulihora masala is ready, add the cooked rice and gently tossed in the pulihora masala until all the rice is well coated with the masala. Check the salt and adjust to suit your taste.

  7. Cover the pan and allow the flavors to get absorbed into the rice - for about 4 to 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and give the Gongura Pulihora Rice a stir and serve.

  8. Serve the Gongura Pulihora as it is for lunch or along with a main course south indian thali meal.
