  • Using black sesame gives a color and flavor which I prefer personally for this rice. You can also use white/brown sesame seeds.
  • I have used Raw ponni rice here. You can use boiled rice or even Basmati Rice.
  • You can also add a teaspoon of ghee to the rice.
  • The spice varies according to your taste so adding more numbers of chilies (6) are totally up to you. I added three according my taste. Which i have mentioned in the sesame rice powder recipe.
