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!!!
