Ingredients

Notes
1. Cinnamon, star anise, bay leaf, fennel seeds and other whole garam masala spice can be added for additional flavor
2. Soaking Dal and rice part can be skipped, I do it as occasionally Dal I get here won't cook properly without soaking
3. No-onion no-garlic version of arisi paruppu sadam can also be prepared
4. Vegetables like carrot, peas, beans, beetroot etc. can be added
5. If you are cooking the arisi paruppu sadam directly in pressure cooker add ¼ cup extra water
