Ulundhu Sadham/Black-gram Rice

Cooks in: 6 Minutes Serves: 2 People

Urad dal rice is a nutty, flavourful rice from Thirunelveli district of TamilNadu. A very healthy rice variety which is served with sesame chutney/ellu thuvayal. I have never tasted this until I made it at home! My friend Srividhya Pratheepan shared the recipe using rice and I adapted it to suit millets and my taste. Thanks Vidhya for sharing the recipe.

  2. In a 2 Ltr cooker, add all the ingredients. Cook on high for 6 Whistles.
  3. Let pressure settle down. Open and fluff up after 10 minutes.
