Arisi Paruppu Sadham(Dal rice)-Authentic Kongu Dish

Arisi Paruppu Sadham or Arisim Paruppu Saatham, a traditional and an authentic kongunadu rice dish, if u have visited kongu people's home, the first and the main rice dish they used to serve to their guest will goes directly to this arisi paruppu sadham, its such a famous kongu dish everyone at kongu nadu prepare this rice according to their taste with many variations, some will go for simple dish with veggies and dal cooked with rice, while others prepare a simple masala with spices, tomates and grated coconut and cook everything with rice and dal in pressure cooker, after a long and few search to try out this famous dal rice through net i finally finished this rice dish in pressure cooker without veggies but with a simple spice masala and cooked everything together in pressure cooker, for my taste this arisi paruppu sadham tastes like dal briyani since the spice masala i used to make this delicious rice was quite as same i used sometimes to prepare for making some briyani or pulao dishes...Arisi paruppu sadham tastes simply delicious with papads, chips or fryums and its a quick, nutritious and a complete lunch also a real comfort food, suits incredibly for lunch box menu..We just loved this healthy dal rice with spicy potato roast and onion raita..


1+1/2cups Basmati rice or any other rice
1/2cup Toor dhal or moong dal
1no Onion (chopped)
1/4tsp Mustard seeds
5nos Garlic cloves (minced)

To Grind:
3nos Dry red chillies
1no Tomato chopped (big)
1nos CInnamon stick
2nos Cloves
1/4cup Grated coconut

Grind everything as bit coarse paste from the list 'To Grind'..Take a pressure cooker, add enough oil and let splutters the mustard seeds, add the chopped onions and minced garlic cloves and saute everything until the onions turns transculent..Meanwhile wash thoroughly the dal and rice together and keep aside...Add the grounded paste,turmeric powder to the cooking onions and sauté until the raw smells goes away, now add the dal and rice, stir for few seconds,finally add 4cups of water(if u want the rice mushy, u can add one more cup of water) and salt..Close the cooker and cook upto two whistles...
