Ellu sadam / sesame seeds rice recipe

      I love making variety rice once in a while. Making it with sesame seeds was not very new to me as my mom had made it in a few occasions. But somehow, it was totally forgotten and I had never tried making this. Last week ,during the aadi perakku (eighteenth day in aadi masam /month according to tamil calender), I was told by my elders to make some variety rice as prasadam for the auspicious day. After some thoughts and discussions with my grandmom who gave me the recipe too, I went ahead making the ellu sadam and some chakkarai pongal (recipe coming soon). We loved it!!!
ellu sadam
Ingredients-
Cooked rice- 2cups (Each grain should be seperate)
White sesame seeds/ellu- 1/3 cup
Dried red chillies- 5-6 nos
Udid dal- 2tsp
Mustard seeds- 1tsp
Channa dal- 1tsp
Peanuts- 1/4 cup
Curry leaves- few leaves
Sesame oil- 1tsp
Salt to taste

Method-
     Dry roast the sesame seeds. Cool and dry it to a fine powder Dry roast udid dal and dried red chillies seperately and grind it to a fine powder.
      Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds followed by channa dal, curry leaves and peanuts. Add the udid dal and dried red chilly powder along with some salt. Saute for a minute. Now add the cooked rice. Mix well. Finally, add the sesame seeds powder  and mix well. Remove from flame after 2 to 3 minutes.
       Serve hot.
