Ellu Sadham/Sesame Seeds Rice

After lemon rice and tamarind rice, my next choice always goes to ellu sadham, yes!! sesame seeds rice are my most favourite rice, this rice tastes spicy with a delicious nutty flavour, which my mom used to make out quite often during purattasi month,that too specially on saturdays..This sesame seeds rice is prepared with a mixture of roasted sesame seeds,dry roasted red chillies and roasted urad dal as coarse fine powder which can be conserved for a month if this sesame seeds spice powder are stored in an air tightened box and this spice powder is quite handy to make out this delicious rice dish anytime easily...When this grounded spice powder added to already cooked basmati rice tempered with ghee,mustard seeds,curry leaves and dry chillies makes out a fantastic & flavourful sesame seeds rice...watelse we need!! nothing will beat this delicious rice when served warm with potato chips or papads..its quite a long i prepared this rice at home, this sesame seeds rice was our saturday's lunch menu which i served with crispy masal vadai..Both together tasted divine, needless to say this delicious rice goes to my own event called Cooking With Seeds-Sesame Seeds also sending to Silpa's APS-Rice...



1/4cup Sesame seeds(i used white sesame seeds)
6nos Dry red chillies
2tbsp Urad dal
3cups Cooked Basmati rice

For Tempering:
1/4tsp Mustard seeds
1/4tsp Urad dal
2nos Dry red chillies
few Curry leaves
2tbsp Ghee

Dry roast sesame seeds in simmer until they turn golden brown, in tha same pan dry roast the dry chillies then followed by urad dal..keep aside and let them get cooled.. grind as fine or coarse powder with enough salt and store them in a air tightened box..

Add this spice powder to the cooked rice as much as u desire, meanwhile heat the ghee and fry the mustard seeds,urad dal, dry chillies and curry leaves, add immediately this tempered spices to the rice and toss gently until the rice get well mixed..add salt if needed..

Enjoy this dish with any side dish!!

I remember eating this in many temples. I think the way my mom made is very similar but she added dry coconut grated.

Hi Dear Priya What a coincidence! I am having sesame seed rice in my draft to send it to your event. I love the smell of sesame seeds ,so I always have this at home.I have this with a little hot rice and ghee almost everyday before meals.When I saw the event I thought of sending sesame seed rice for the event .Even now I am planning to send it as mine is slightly different from yours .I add jeera and pepper also.Can I send my version, Dear Priya

Reminds me of Amma, she made them often. Unfortunately my husband does not like them. I am missing it a lot.
BTW do you get the short red chillies here? or is the pic deceiving me...

Priya said... Reply To This Comment

@Cilantro,my sister send me a pack of this short red chillies quite a long back from India..I use them rarely..
