Veppam Poo Sadam / Neem Flower Rice

Veppam Poo (Neem Flower) is a very medicinal ingredients and has a lot of advantages.. If you have a neem tree in the house, then fresh flowers are easy, but otherwise you could get dried neem flowers from many grocery shops or Naattu Marundhu Kadai (Natural medicine shops / Health Food stores). This rice is very flavorful, soothing and comforting... 
Dried Veppam Poo - 1/4 cup
Cooked Rice - 1 cup
Ghee / Sesame Oil - 2 table spoons (preferably ghee)
Cumin Seeds - 1/2 tea spoon
Garlic cloves - 5
Asafetida - 1/8 tea spoon
Salt - 1/2 tea spoon
Pepper powder - 1 tea spoon
Crush the cumin and garlic together.. I used a mortar and pestle to do it..
Heat ghee in a pan add the crushed cumin and garlic
After sautéing for 30 seconds, add the dried veppam poo, salt and asafetida and cook for a minute
Make place in the pan and add little ghee and sauté the pepper powder and now mix all together
Remove from heat and mix it with hot steamy rice and serve!!!
