A quick to do rice variety with rich calcium.Kids will definitely like it. Sesame is a rich source of calcium and this variety rice is very easy to do but rich in  nutrition. Do try for yourself and let me know the outcome.

  • Rice-1 cup
  • Black sesame-4 tbsp
  • Red chilly-2
  • Salt-To taste
  • Mustard seeds-1/2 tbsp
  • Urad dhal-1/2 tbsp
  • Curry leaves-Handful
  • Oil-To cook
  • Salt-To taste
  • Palm Jaggery-1/2 tbsp(Optional)


  1. Cook rice and cool it . The rice must not be over cooked.
  2. Dry roast sesame in a kadai. Cool and run it a mixer for a minute.
  3. Add oil in a kadai and temper mustard seeds,urad dhal,red chilly and curry leaves.
  4. Add the sesame mixture,salt to the rice along with items of step.3
  5. Serve it hot with any deep fry like baby potato fry

My Observations:

Do not dry roast sesame very deep. It will turn bitter.

When powdering sesame,run the mixer the carefully or else the mixture will not be in powder format.

Adding little palm jaggery while powdering sesame will enhance the taste.


For babies below one year skip salt.

Adjust chilly as per your taste.
