Arisi Paruppu Sadam - Dhal Rice Recipe (Coimbatore Special)

Arisi Paruppu Sadam Recipe
Arisi Paruppu Sadam / Dhal is one of the popular kongu special recipes here in Coimbatore.This is very quick to fix up for lunch but a very tasty variety rice. My best friend Sowmya used to bring it during our college days and I used to happily finish up half of her lunch during interval itself lending herself my tiffin box for lunch :) I called her up last week to get the recipe and here it is for you....

My Notes:

  • Arisi Paruppu sadam should be slightly mushy but if you like your rice to be separated then add 2.5 cups of water.
  • You can even skip small onion while tempering.
  • It is recommended to serve it hot as the rice will become dry soon.

  49. Sharmilee.... This is one of my favourite food right from my childhood. I am from Erode.... Felt so happy when i saw your post on Arisiyum Paruppum... :)
    One small suggestion... Instead of the chopped garlics, my mom used to smash the garlic with fennels (Sombu) and saute it along with onions and rest of your ingredients which will blend even with the rice and gives out a nice aroma when you open the lid :) Try this... :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. Hi Sharmi, beautiful recipe. This my mom's and my fav recipe. My mom used to add coconut oil instead of ghee just after opening the cooker. It gives a wonderful flavour too. Let me know if you try and like it. We usually have it with brinjal poriyal. :)

  51. Tried it today.Came out well.Thanks a lot.

  52. Tried it today.Came out well.Thanks a lot.My amma used to do it without tomato and garlic.Instead she will add pepper and asafoetida (not sure).But tomato and garlic gave an altogether different taste.
