Sesame Rice / Ellu Sadam

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.

Hmm coming to todays recipe 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.
