  24. Very nice..My MIL makes it nicely :) urs is also looking equally good :)

  25. congrats for award, rice looks so delicious

  26. Really nice and easy to prepare meal. However, I'd rather use coconut oil as well when cooking the mustard seeds,channa dal, freid gram,urad dhal and green chilli. I love using this oil when cooking or even for moisturizing my skin and hair due to the coconut oil benefits it gives.

  27. Looks lovely Jeyashri. In my version, we soak about a handful of urad dhal in water and allow it to swell up in some time and THEN add it to the tadka so it makes it look fuller and also accents the taste. BYW why doesnt your blog allow wordpress comments???


  28. A very simple recipe...but tasted great. Thanks for sharing Jeya....Kudos...

  29. When I was young (long time ago), my mother prepare thangai sadam, especeillay when we eat outside (on the beach for the day). I like it very much. Her recipe is more or less the same. She add dried chilli and cashew nut. I always use fresh coconut. The result is great. Thank you.

  30. Congrates to you for your award. Its nice and very tasty rice. Well presented. Keep rocking Jey.

  31. Thank you. It was soo yummy:)
