Thatta Payiru Sadam is a staple one-pot recipe from Kongu Cuisine. Kongu Nadu comprises of Western Tamilnadu districts such as Coimbatore, Erode, Thirupur, Salem, Karur, Namakkal,Dharmapuri etc. Rice is predominately used as staple food along with cholam, kambu, kezhvaragu and different kinds of pulses. Arisi Paruppu Sadam is one of the most common one-pot recipe from Kongu cuisine. In Arisi Paruppu Sadam we use thoor dal and rice. Thatta Payiru Sadam is also similar to Arisi Paruppu Sadam but instead of toor dal we use Black-eyed Cow peas which we call as Thatta Payiru or Karamani Payiru in Tamil. This is also a one-pot Rice recipe that is rich in protein and fiber. A perfect kids Lunch Box recipe.

Benefits of Black-eyed Cow Peas:

Black-eyed peas are highly nutritious and associated with many impressive health benefits. These are not peas but rather a type of bean. Black-eyed peas are high in protein and fiber, along with micronutrients such as folate, copper, and thiamine. Due to their content of protein and soluble fiber, adding black-eyed peas to your diet is a great way to boost weight loss. It improves digestive health, and support better heart health.

Tips for making Thatta Payiru Sadam:

  1. Cowpeas needs atleast 2 hours of soaking. If you are planning to make for lunch box, we can soak the cowpeas overnight too.
  2. Traditionally in Kongu Cuisine, boiled rice is used. But we can use regular white raw rice we use in our kitchen.
  3. Soak the rice for atleast 30 mins. Soaking helps the rice to get cooked quickly.
  4. Shallots are used in this recipe. We can also use regular big onions.
  5. Garlic is optional we can exclude.
  6. We can also temper whole masalas like cinnamon, cloves, fennel etc.
  7. Pressure cook only for 3 whistles. This will make the rice fluffy without getting sticky and mushy.
