Urad dal powder is used to cure the bone fractures also.
I remember the good old childhood days when my mother prepares this rice with pulusu, (that is plain tamarind gravy. It used to taste heavenly in that combination.) I used to visit the kitchen every two minutes to check whether it is done.. :)
It is very easy and Quick recipe, which will suit for lunch box also. There are plenty of methods to do this rice. Here I am sharing the method which my mom used to prepare.
Any kind of Urad dal can be used for this rice, but I prefer the one with skin and splited into half. which will give you a better taste, color and aroma.. :)
Ponni Rice- 1 cup
Splited black urad dal - 1/2 cup
venthayam - 1/8 tea spoon (or just 5 or 6 of it.)
cumin / jeera - 1 tea spoon
garlic - 2 gloves (cut into pieces)
salt - as per taste
1. Wash Rice and dal and soak for 15 mins
2. In a pressure cooker add the soaked rice, dal, cumin, venthayam, garlic,salt and add 3 cups of water.
3. Leave it to 3 whistles and cook.
4. when the pressure is released by itself serve with your choice of tamarind gravy (pulusu) or thogayal.
