Ellu Sadam, Sesame Rice or Til ke chawal is easy variety rice recipe made with sesame seeds and other easy ingredients. Ellu sadam or sesame rice has very nutty flavor and it's one of the good lunch box recipe option. Great way to include sesame in our diet and also that it's very quick to make. I make once a while ellu sadam or til ke chawal when I want to take a break from routine dal-chawal.

Ellu Sadam is mostly served as Naivedaym during festival in Tamil household apart from making it for lunch as this recipe has no onion and garlic. I made this for lunch along with lemon rice, curd rice, fried some vadam (fryums) and potato fry, proper tamil style lunch for a change :) Making variety rice is always so easy just make the rice divide in portions and make 2-3 variety rice in a go which doesn't only look amazing plus get to eat different things with less effect.


Try this ellu sadam for lunch box as it's not spicy even kids will enjoy this and your work is also reduced a lot, if you wish you can prepare the sesame powder and store it, just make the rice and prepare tempering when needed for morning rush it's great idea.
