Ulundogorai | How to make Urad Dal Rice

Ulundogorai

Ulundogorai is a Spicy Urad Dal flavoured Rice that is offered as naivedyam at Srirangam Temple in Trichy. This rice dish is very easy to make and can be packed for the lunch box as well.

In many of the temples, we have our traditional dishes offered as prasadam and these rice dishes are no onion no garlic based. This Ulundorai or Ulundogorai makes a wonderful option for the lunch box as well.

Ulundu means Urad dal and ogorai refers to tempered rice. This was one of the dishes I made together where the spice powders were roasted and made in bulk. Ellu Sadam was the other one, while the third one is yet to be shared. I had referred some handful of sites before making this dish and changed the measurement to our needs. I basically made this quite spicy. So you can reduce the red chili as per your taste.

Ulundogorai is the pick for U in the AtoZ Quick Under 30 Minutes, which is my theme in the Biryanis, Pulaos, Khichdis, and Mixed Rices. If you want to read some elaborate Biryanis, check out what I have for U in Spice your Life!

  1. How interesting ! The urad dal powder with other spices must be so yum . You all have advantage of using these podis in rice to make them so flavourful ! Seriously I would never ever think on these lines . Absolutely wonderful !

  2. Wow a masala with urad dal and then add it to the rice. I have urad dal gota, bought it to make podi, and now lying in my pantry. would like to try this version of rice.
