Cooking Rice in a Pot/How to Cook Rice without Pressure Cooker or Rice Cooker/Cooking Rice – The Healthy Way/Sadham Vadippadhu Eppadi –Sadham Seivadhu Eppadi


Today, I am going to share a very basic recipe of how to cook rice in a pot. In those days, even when I was a small girl “vaditha Sadham”/Rice cooked in pot was very common in all the households. But later on, the popularity and convenience of the pressure cooker, has changed every bodies lives. So, it’s become very common to make rice in pressure cooker and electric cooker. Vaditha Sadham is healthy when compared to the pressure cooked rice, because we are draining out the excess starch from the rice. This is a very basic way of making rice, so I thought of sharing with you all. Do check out the recipe with step by step photos and post your comments here.

I make this a lot in summer days to cool down the body temperature. My grandma makes this only with white onions, but I switch between white, red and small pearl onions depending on the availability of onions in my kitchen.
