Arisiyum paruppum recipe

   Arisiyum paruppum means rice and dal cooked together. I'm not aware if this dish has another name. It 's a popular dish in our side (Tiruppur, Coimbatore), usually made for breakfast or dinner. It's meal by itself and does not need any other side dish. It's quick and a time saver when you have unexpected guests at meal time. It can be served with dry vegetables, pickles or curd. Variations can be made by adding veggies to it. I've made a simple one without adding vegetables to it. Serve this with home made ghee and you will be left wanting more. Here is the recipe.

  • Rice- 1 cup
  • Chana dal- 1/4 cup
  • Turmeric powder - 1/4 teaspoon
  • Salt - To taste 
  • Water - 3 cups
  • Oil - 1 teaspoon
  • Ghee - 1 teaspoon
  • Mustard seeds - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Curry leaves - A few
  • Garlic - 2 small
  • Onion - 1 big (I've used shallots. They taste better)
  • Green chillies - 2 or 3
  • Tomato - 1 small
  • Wash rice and dal and keep aside.
  • Heat oil and ghee in cooker. Once it is hot add mustard seeds. Let them splutter. 
  • Add diced garlic, curry leaves, onion, green chillies. Saute till the onions are translucent.
  • Add tomatoes and saute for a minute or two. Now add  rice and dal with water, turmeric powder and salt. Mix them all nicely, close the lid and cook upto 3 whistles (as you normally cook rice).
  • Once the gas is turned off, let the steam in the cooker go by itself and then open. Serve it with ghee, curd, pickle or fried brinjal.

This is a new recipe for me, we hardly ever use chana dal with rice, bookmarked to try some time.
