Here’s another one of my favourites.. Arisi Parupu Sadam from Kongunadu cuisine, one that brings a lotta childhood memories .. sunday specials wen i was kid at home and after a long time something from my dad’s kitchen.. this easy to make recipe is yummy and very healthy for growing kids.. its almost the same as dal rice but a bit more spicier and tastier…anyone can try it out and not go wrong in it.. it def has an extra zing to it that a normal parupu sadam doesnt have… here is it from my dad’s kitchen.. Arisi Parupu Sadam recipe…

Arisi Parupu Sadam Recipe

Rice – 2 cups – pressure cooked
Dal – 1 1/2 cups – pressure cooked
Onion – 1 medium sized
Mustard seeds – 1/2 tsp
Channa dal – 1 to 2 tbsp
Urud dal – 1 tbsp
Turmeric powder – 1/2 tbsp
Green chillies – 2 to 3 – slit in the middle
Asafoedia – a small pinch
Curry leaves – very few
Oil/Ghee to saute
Salt to taste


In a kadai, add a little oil, splutter the mustards, add the dals and curry leaves, fry well.
Now add the chillies and turmeric powder.
Chop the onions finely and add to the kadai, fry till golden brown adding some ghee.
Now mix in the cooked dal, add salt and asafoetida, mash and cook for few mins.
Swtich off the flame, add the rice slowly and mix continously, adding salt as required.

You may add red chillies, ginger-garlic paste and even a lil bit garam masala if u like, the spices totally depends upon ur liking, tho this is the typical way of doing authentic Arisiparupu Sadam, best served with Rice appalams!

  1. the rice in the snap looks a bit over boiled..err there ends my comment..i know wat u wud be cursing "wish u get thrashed by the kadai for such comments post one month".

    it looks a bit like arisi upma they do at my place but yeah turmeric makes the difference.

  2. oh yea.. my pictures are gettin to become very worse.. time to change my fone! and no its not over boiled.. its the dal (and the bad picture quality) thts giving u such an illusion 😛

    arisi upma.. has no dal and doesnt use boiled rice…nowhere close to this one…try 'Rasam' (puraswalkam one… mylapore one is horrible) to try out this kongunadu specialty .. or better than that come home for dinner someday!
