Black Urad dal Rice(Karuppu Ulunthu Sadam)

Black urad dal rice is a simple and a healthy dish. The Urad Dal gives the rice texture, crunchiness and taste. The garlic is strong but not overwhelming. Just go with the same procedure for the skinless urad dal rice too. Whole Urad dal is also known as Black (Kali) Urad dal due to its whole black color. This black (Kali) Urad dal is one of the most frequently made dal at Punjabi homes. In those days, our granny’s used to give us lots of healthier foods which we now a day tend to avoid it.Many healthier foods are hidden now a days in this fast world track. Fine guys chill out all old memories and now we get on with our urad dal rice recipe.
