I go Vegan on Thursdays, since I am a devotee for Saibaba. So planned to make something I haven’t tried till this date. I had this “Ulundu rice” in my college days from one of my college-mate. I love <3 this rice a lot, but my that time being playful :D, I never even opened my ears for recipe to her. All of a sudden yesterday I was thinking about those days and started for this recipe. Finally got this and attempted today morning it and result was too good.
It’s one of the famous recipe of Tirunelveli town of the southern part of India. This Ulundu sadam / Blackgram rice is accompanied with ELLU THOGAYAL / Black SESAME Chutney and Avial. Incase of Non-veg it’s accompanied with ELLU THOGAYAL / Black sesame chutney and Dry Fish gravy.
These are usually prepared for teen girls during their puberty. This rice strengthens the bones and this Ellu thogayal is to flush out the toxins from ovaries and Avial includes the goodness of all vegetables.
