SUNDAL – A RICE DISH

This is not the usual sundal we make with legumes..This is rice upma which my MIL call it as sundal.It can be made in a jiffy and its healthy too..Less oil is used.I usually make this for dinner.

Rice Sundal

Ingredients:

  • Raw rice – 3/4 cup
  • Moong dal – 1/4 cup.(Equal ratio of rice & dal is also good)
  • Water – 2.25 cups
  • Salt  – as needed.
  • Grated coconut – 1/4 cup

To temper:

  • Mustard seeds – 1/2 tsp
  • Urad dal – 1/2 tsp
  • Green chilly – 1-2 nos
  • Curry leaves – a sprig
  • Asafetida / hing – 1/4 tsp (half during tempering and half should be added raw in the water)
  • Ginger – 1 inch (finely chopped )
  • Oil – 2 tsp

Method:

  • Dry roast the rice till it puffs up slightly.
  • Dry roast the moong dal till it turns light golden brown with a nice aroma.Set aside.
  • Both the above process takes hardly 5 mins.
  • Then in the same hot kadai , add 1 tsp of oil and do the tempering part.
  • As i had mentioned earlier, half the quantity of asafetida should be added while tempering along with the dals.
  • After tempering , just add the water,salt , roasted rice & moong dal.
  • Now add the remaining hing and ginger pieces.
  • Add a tsp of oil and close the cooker with the lid. (adding oil in the water makes the rice separate, u all know this)
  • Cook for 1 whistle .Cool, open and add the grated coconut before serving!!

Serve with sambhar/ coconut chutney!!!
