Sukku Malli Rice


  • Cooked Rice – 1 cup
  • Sukku Malli Powder – 2 teaspoons
  • Mustard – 1/2 teaspoon
  • Urad dhal – 1 teaspoon
  • Casuew Nuts – few
  • Curry Leaves – few
  • Ghee or Gingelly Oil – 1 to 2 teaspoons
  • Salt – 1/2 teaspoon or as per taste

The sukku malli powder (Dry ginger and coriander seeds) is normally prepared by frying the dry ginger and coriander seeds and then making a fine powder. Having hot rice mixed with a teaspoon of plain dry ginger powder with a pinch of salt and little ghee will give relief from stomach disorder and body pain. Adding coriander seeds will give nice aroma to the rice.
I tried using the Ready Made “Sukku Malli Coffee Powder” available in the market. It tastes good and saves time.


  1. Put the cooked rice in a broad vessel and sprinkle little ghee over it. Add salt and the sukku malli powder and mix well.
  2. In a kadai put the remaining ghee and add mustard. When it pops up add urad dhal and fry till it turns light brown. Add cashew nuts and curry leaves. Switch of the stove and add the rice to it. Mix it thoroughly.
  3. Serve along with a cup of rasam or followed by rasam rice.
