South Indian Kadambam Rice - T&T from Chef In You

I can survive just with a dals and pickles for many weeks, while searching some rice dish through Dk's Chef In You i got hooked with this South Indian Kadambam rice, which ressembles quite like Bisi Bele Bath, my most favourite dish..While going through this recipe at Dk's space,this dish was truly very easy also its seems that this rice is her mom's version which was given by her mom's elder sister, so i immediately wanted to try this dish, eventhough i prepare almost the same rice...Yep each family have their own way of making this sort of rice with dals and veggies, even my mom makes something similar but she used to add some tempered spices to enhance the flavour of this rice..This kadambam rice was quite an easy rice dish and just with papads this rice tastes absolutely divine and we loved it..This is my another entry to T&T -Chef In You guest hosted by myself, event by Lakshmi..

Kadambam rice

1cup Rice
1/2cup Channa dal
1/2cup Toor dal
1tbsp Tamarind paste
4cups Mixed Veggies(any veggies of ur choice)
1tbsp Sambar powder
Salt
Few curry leaves
2tbsp Coriander leaves (chopped)
1tsp Ghee

Cook rice with 3cups of water, cook together the dals with enough water until they turns soft, meanwhile cook the veggies with enough water until they get half cooked and keep aside.

In a large pan, mix the tamarind paste with 3cups of water, add the salt, sambar powder, curry leaves and the already cooked veggies and cook for few minutes until the veggies get well cooked, mash the dals and add to the cooking veggies, until the gravy turns bit thick..

Add cooked rice to the dal-veggies mixture and gently mix everything..Garnish the rice with chopped coriander and ghee..

Serve hot with papads or either with pickles..

Kadambam rice looks yummy. This is something like bisibelebhat. There is a slight difference in the masala though :)
