Ellu Sadam Recipe(Sesame Rice)

Ellu Sadam Recipe

This Ellu Sadam is my favorite.I luv sesame seeds in any form either sweet or savoury. And after reading many health benefits of sesame I never miss them out when I go for my monthly grocery shopping. Bored of the usual variety rice?! try this one for a change and am sure u'l make this often.

Hope u'r all having a good busy week....I m here struggling to find a good internet connection. Have almost done a research in all Internet Service Providers in my city.

My Notes:

  • You can replace urad dal with channa dal too.
  • If you are using fresh cookoed rice then spread it  in a plate and cool down completely then add it.
  • You can make the thokku the previous day and refrigerate it.It keeps well atleast for 3-4 days if refrigerated.
