Madhulam Palam Sadham (pomegranate Rice

I just love to have fruit salad as it rich source of vitamin, protein and so on….Yesterday I purchased the most popular fruit pomegranate which is nutritious and good for health too. It is rich in Vitamin-C that acts as an antioxidant in preventing various diseases. When pomegranate is taken regularly it is effective in preventing prostate cancer, diabetes and so on… One fine morning I tried making pomegranate rice which is tasty and healthy too. Now I present here how I made it…..

Rice - 1 cup (or as needed)
Mustard - 1/4 teaspoon for seasoning
Fenugreek seeds- ½ tea spoon
Pomegranate – 1 No
Green Chillies – 4 nos
Red Chillies – 3 Nos
Cashew Nut – 5 Nos

In a kadai heat oil and sauté the mustard seed, fenugreek seed, and Bengal gram. When it turns brown add curry leaves cashew nuts and red chillies and add the grinded green chillies and ginger and garlic paste.
