1. After eating pulisadam we might feel thirsty so always pack curd rice with it
2. Pulikaichal can be directly mixed with rice and tempering can be skipped
3. Basmati rice can also be used for pulisadam instead of regular white rice
4. Mix puli sadam and consume after few hours for better taste
5. If you are cooking rice explicitly for puli sadam add few drops of sesame oil while keeping rice
