Urad Dal Rice

Urad Dal Rice is a healthy and nutrient Rice variety, mildly spiced and filling. You can make this Urad Dal Rice with very few ingredients and is good for a lunch box.

I tasted Urad Dal rice in one of my Friend's place and it was made using Black Urad dal. If I said the rice was "Heavenly", it will not make justice to the taste. I sometimes get this uncontrollable craving for Rice that I go to make a spiced rice and have it right away. Recently Naveen bought a huge pack of Urad Dal for his Dosa batter. I am not a fan of Dosas myself but I knew I could make that Urad dal rice with the white urad dal Naveen bought home.

I asked for the recipe and instantly got it. I made this Urad Dal Rice and I have got to say, it tasted just like the one that my friend's mom made.
