Moong Dal rice-Arisi Paruppu sadam

Moong dal rice/Pasi paruppu sadam can be prepared in a jiffy and does not need much ingredients. This is one of the most famous dishes of Coimbatore. My mother does not prepare this Dhal rice, I came to know of this dish only after marriage from my sister-in-law.This is a quick fix dinner/lunch and even bachelors can prepare this as it does not involve any elaborate procedures. This goes well with coconut chutney, sambar, tomato chutney, brinjal gotsu, peanut chutney, or just chips or papads.

How to make pasi paruppu sadam

3. Heat oil, add mustard seeds, when it splutters, add the other ingredients mentioned under seasoning in the same order.

4. When dal turns golden brown, add the roasted rice + moong dal and fry for a few seconds till all the seasoning gets coated well with the rice and dal mixture.

5. Add 8 cups of boiling water, needed salt and pressure cook for 2 whistles. ( It can be cooked directly in the pressure cooker as I have done or transfer it to another vessel and pressure cook).

6. After the steam is released, open the cooker, add graded coconut (optional) and mix it well with the back of the ladle. Arisi pasi paruppu sadam/ Moong dal rice is ready to be served.

We had it hot with tomato chutney. It was simply divine. Do try this easy breezy dish and enjoy!

Note -I have used old rice, so I have added 4 cups of water for 1 cup of rice. Add water according to the rice variety you use. Moong dal rice should be soft but not mushy, so add water accordingly.
