VERY VERY SIMPLE ONE POT MEAL

Rice sundal

                     One day I was very much confused At wits endwhat to make for dinner and asking my friends I chat with ,what their plans for dinner.Then suddenly Light bulbthis simple yet very flavourful  one  I got to remember,try once,may be you like it too!  I wanted this to be in my space as this is a family favourite! My mom makes another variant too,which I will post later…This recipe  will sound like pongal+Upma…I dont knowbut trust me,the taste is nothing related to any of these dishes..!

I served with coconut thogayal,I just made a variation of adding a sprig of curry leaves in it …

INGREDIENTS

Raw rice/long grain rice 1 cup
Yellow moong dal/Pasi paruppu 1/4 cup
Grated coconut,for garnish(Optional) 3-4 tblsp
Salt 1 & 1/4 tsp or as needed
Water 2 cups

To temper

Oil 2 tsp
Mustard 3/4 tsp
Green chilli,slit 3-4 nos
curry leaves 1 sprig
Asafetida 1/8 tsp

Rice sundal

Method:

  1. In a heavy bottomed pan( I used cooker itself),dry roast rice and dal together till the rice turns milky white and nice aroma rises. (I will soon update the picture to show the stage).Keep aside.
  2. Add the oil in the cooker directly and temper with the items given in order.
  3. Add two cups water,salt and the roasted rice &  dal mixture and mix well.
  4. Temper add water
    Mix everything Done!
  5. Pressure cook for 3 whistles in medium flame.
  6. Serve hot with little coconut gratings and coconut thogayal for accompaniment… My H loves with sugar too..!

  5. Looks soooooo yummy .. Loved the name for the dish Raji and different too. In madurai the sourashtra people makes Ven pongal which is very similar to this but different to what we make..as our pongal will be mushy.. Some time I too make this kind of uthiri pongal(My name for the dish) as I love it so much. Seasoning One addition is I add Pepper fried in ghee others are almost same. But the rice variety I use is Jeeraga samba. But never tried with thogayal will surely make this combo soon.
