Arrissi • S.Nedungulam
Winnowing the rice (arrissi in Tamil).

The grains and husk formed a dusty curtain while she held the winnow elegantly. Nothing get lost, again and again the rice was cleaned out by the wind.

A common scene of the country-side with Pongal.
She asked to drink a tea, you must get thirsty with this dusty work in full sun.

Some dishes made with rice:
- idly (steamed rice cakes),
- dosai (a pancake made from a batter of rice),
- pongal (a mxed mash of rice and lentils boiled together and seasoned with ghee, cashew nuts, pepper and cummin seed)

With breakfast Idly is served and Lunch or meals consist of cooked rice served with an array of vegetable dishes, sambar, chutneys, rasam and curd.

Most Tamils eat only vegatable rice dishes in the morning, at noon and in the evening ....
