Dish: Rice with Urad dal spice powder (Ulundu Ogaray)
Can’t believe we are only few weeks away from a New year, time sure seems to fly. We are starting a new edition of Blogging marathon today and my theme for this week is ‘Bring on your Rice’, Valli wants us to post any rice based dish.
As a South Indian, rice is our staple food and every meal essentially revolves around rice. So it is only natural that I take up this theme to try some more new rice dishes.
First up is this South Indian rice flavored with urad dal spice powder. Recipe is from Dakshin by Chandra Padmanabhan. This is a very simple and easy to make dish. Spice powder made with urad dal (minapappu), peppercorns and dry grated coconut is used to flavor the rice.
This is a great dish to use up leftover rice. Served with papad or chips, this makes a delicious meal.
