Ellu Sadam | How to make Sesame Rice

Ellu Sadam

Ellu Sadam is a spicy rice dish made with the Sesame spice powder. This is a quick and easy rice to make as you can store the spice powder as well.

I already have an Ellu Sadam made with toor dal before, so this time I wanted to make the spice powder with Urad dal. Since I have some more of the mixed rice varieties listed, I wanted to check if I could make all of them together.

So this was part of the cooking marathon I had for a saturday lunch along with couple of more dishes. I had to make sure the spices were roasted and powdered separately so that it could be added as per requirement. I really love this part of the Mega Marathon, when I can enjoy calculating and scaling up or down depending on the need.

We had such a fantastic meal with all three dishes prepared and I would surely be making these dishes again!

Ellu Sadam is my choice for EC in the AtoZ Quick Under 30 Minutes, which is my theme in the Biryanis, Pulaos, Khichdis and Mixed Rices, where I am doing Quick Under 30 Minutes Meals. If you want to read some elaborate Biryanis, check out what I have for E in Spice your Life!

  1. Valli , I admire you for the hard work you put in these marathons, love the way you do your bulk cooking ! Lol and now that I have seen you I feel you are a master at it . The rice with the spice powders is a great idea and worth learning .

  2. As I had earlier done one A – Z rice marathon, I had to think hard to come up with dishes. If we have this sesame seed powder ready, this one makes a very quick and easy meal.

  3. a new and very interesting recipe for me.. the masala with sesame powder and reed chillies looks so tempting..love to try this sadam recipe with spicy masala .

  4. I knew that one of your choice for e would be ellu saadam. This is the type of powder I make at home using urad dal. Will check your other version too. This is one classic variety rice.

  5. Hahaha! Three rice dishes for a single meal? My folks will be so happy if I served them this platter. I also keep another version of sesame seed powder handy for mixing this kind of rice and makes for an easy lunch box item.

  6. We make this during adiperukku but I haven’t posted it on my blog yet. I use a mix of both black and white sesame seeds. I love this version of yours with white sesame. The powder really comes in handy on those busy days.

  7. A good way to add some fiber and protein to your regular diet. I have never tried making a spice powder with sessame seeds and adding it to the rice. Interesting Recipe.
