Sesame Rice | Ellu Sadham

I have expressed my love for flavored rice varieties and have around 75  varieties to prove the same.So when it came to choosing recipes from a partner blog for this week's Blogging Marathon theme, I looked up in Veena's blog and found this simple sesame rice recipe.

My earlier version is slightly different and I knew this version of Veena's would be very flavorful too,and I was not disappointed.

  3. Heat oil in a pan and roast the urad dal and red chilli till the dal turns brown.
  4. Switch off the flame and put in coconut and mix well.
  5. Once this cools grind it to a fine powder along with toasted sesame seeds.
