Spinach Biryani is an easy and nutritious one pot meal, perfect for lunch boxes. This Spinach Biryani happened on the day I had nothing in the fridge except for spinach. We were in no mood for Spinach Kootu, rice etc etc. All we wanted was Biryani πŸ™‚ Trust me, this tasted totally yumm! We loved the aroma that filled the house and while opening the cooker. It was just wow! I was actually wondering if I should grind the spinach or use it as is. Ended up with the second choice. Shall update here when I try the other here.

Lemon Rice is a very common and popular South Indian rice variety. It is an easy and quick lunch box recipe. All u need is rice, lemon juice and tempering. I pretty much told the recipe here.

All u need to do is marinate the baby potatoes and then the rest of the procedure can be done quickly. Baby potatoes are always a favourite and will be in my shopping list!

Ulutham Paruppu Sadham – Urad Dal Rice

November 10, 2014 Rice Varieties  7 comments

Uluthum Paruppu Sadham/Urad Dal rice is an easy and healthy one pot meal. It is a traditional lunch menu of Tirunelveli. This is served specially to teenage girls during puberty. Urad Dal is rich in calcium and helps to strengthen bones. The complete combo would be Ulutham Paruppu Sadham, ellu thuvayal (recipe coming next), AviyalΒ and/or vathal. This can be made with split white urad dal or the black ones with skin. I have used white urad dal as Chotu does not like the look of the black ones and says “NO” immediately. Black Urad Dal is much healthier than this.
