Arisium paruppum saapaadu - Thoor dal rice

If you were born in coimbatore belt , you would have never missed this rice.This is one such simple rice which the recipe looks very similar to kichdi made in north india or our own pongal but it never tastes anywhere like the both .
Hari was cooking on his own until marriage for about a year and whenever I ask him what is to eat, he invariably says arisium paruppu .He likes it so muchhhh and I am happy that he likes it because this is one of the most easiest and fastest one pot meals that can be prepared in hardly 5 mins.
The taste of ghee with the aroma of garlic and jeera is heavenly .

Ingredients :

  1. Boiled Rice/ ponni rice - 1 cup
  2. Thoor dhal/ moong dhal/ masoor dhal - 1/4 cup
  3. Water - 3 cups
  4. Gingelly oil / Ghee - 2 tbsn.
  5. Mustard seeds - 1 tsp.
  6. Cumin seeds - 1 tsp.
  7. Small onion -5 nos.
  8. Garlic pods - 5 nos.
  9. Curry leaves - few
  10. Red chillies - 5 nos.
  11. Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp.
  12. Sambhar powder - 1 tsp.
  13. Salt to taste.

Method :
  1. Soak the rice and dhal together for about 15 mins . you can totally skip the soaking process as well . 
  2. Heat a pressure pan, add oil and once hot enough , let the mustard seeds and cumin seeds pop out.
  3. Add onion and garlic ( no need to be chopped) , chillies, curry leaves and saute until onion is fried .
  4. Now add sambhar powder, turmeric powder and water . let the water reach boiling point to add rice and dhal mixture.
  5. close the pan with lid and give one whistle at high and then simmer it for 10mins .
  6. Now the mushy arisium paruppum is ready .
Notes :
  1. If using raw rice , i think you should reduce the water by 1/2 cup.
  2. No need to chop onion and garlic .
  3. Serve it by drizzling ghee and roasted papad .
