Pulusu is a popular preparation style in Andhra cooking, and basically features greens, vegetables or other ingredients in a tamarind-based gravy. A remarkable flavour derived from minimal ingredients and a simple procedure makes the Yam and Spinach Pulusu a great hit with everybody. The pulusu gets a flavourful boost from a simple masala powder of mustard seeds and red chillies, which also contains a bit of rice to thicken the gravy quickly.
