ody Arishi paruppu sadam

Arishi paruppu sadam

     This is one of my favorite food. My mom and my MIL used to make it often. It is simple and easy to make.I love to prepare it little bit mushy but my husband like to have it like variety rice( non sticky). We can have this just adding some ghee or coconut oil on top ,mix and have it with vadagam or pickle.

Ingredients :

Rice - 1 1/2 cup
Thur dhal - 1/2 cup
Garlic - 10 no
Small onion - 5
Curry leaves - 3
Jeera - 1 tbsp
Coriander seed - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Homemade powder (sambar powder ) - 2 tbsp
Tomato - 1 big
Salt - as per taste
Asafoetida - a pinch

Recipe :

* Chop onion and tomato.
* Soak rice and dhal together for 30 minutes.

                In a cooker,add oil. Once it is hot,add jeera,coriander seed and asafoetida. Once jeera splatter, add onion, peeled garlic(whole garlic),curry leaves. Fry for awhile. Now add tomato,turmeric powder ,sambar powder and salt. Cook till the tomato is cooked well and slightly oil oozes out from the mixture. Now add soaked rice and dhal to this mixture. Add enough water ,stir and close the lid. Cook for 2 whistle and switch off the flame. Don't open the lid till all the pressure is released. Leave it for 5 minutes and then open. Slowly stir the rice ,so that we will get a fluffy non sticky rice.Either we can add the ghee on top and close the cooker lid for sometimes, so that  the smell of ghee incorporate in rice. Else we can add ghee when we have food .

Note :

* To get a sticky rice,add 3 cup of water to 1 cup of rice. To get non sticky rice like biryani,add 1/2 cup less water .
* Since i love raita,i like to take it with any type of variety rice. I like the combination of arishi paruppu sadam and raita. Some use to have it with pickle or vadagam or any poriyal. Its upto your preference.
