4). Once it reduces in volume and oil oozes out, switch off ! Pulikachal is ready, now add the cooked rice and combine. Check for salt and adjust accordingly. Allow the rice to rest for atleast 30 minutes before serving, this helps to imbibe all the flavors.

Notes :-
-----------
 

# Left over rice suits best for this recipe.
# Using gingelly oil gives a nice flavor to the rice.
# If using roasted peanuts, peel the skin and add it before adding the rice. 

# You can make pulikaichal well in advance and can store for long time
# Avoid using onions, if you cant refrigerate or planning to store it for very long time. 
# Store the leftover pulikachal, you can store in the fridge for a week and use it whenever required.
