Every area has a few traditional foods that are extremely dear to them and are very authentic. Some foods just immediately spring to mind when you think about the cuisine from that area. One such dish that is particularly distinctive to Andhra Pradesh is tamarind rice.
In the states of Telangana and Andhra, tamarind rice is known as Chintapandu Pulihora. Tamarind is referred to as chittapandu, and the words “sour” while “puli” describe the dish’s tart characteristics.
