Curd Rice


(for 2 – 3 persons / time – 15 minutes)
What we need to make Curd Rice ?
2 tablespoon oil, 2 cups cooked or leftover rice (chawal), 1 teaspoon mustard (raa-e) seeds, 1 teaspoon cumin (zeera) seeds, 2 whole dry red chillies (broken into pieces), 2 green chillies (slit lengthwise), 1 tablespoon bengal gram (chana dal), 1 tablespoon split gram (urad dal), 10-12 curry leaves, 1 teaspoon grated ginger (adrak), 2 cups curd, 1 tablespoon chopped coriander (dhania), salt to taste.
Making Curd Rice…

  1. take a bowl mix rice, curd and salt.
  2. Heat the oil in a non-stick pan and add mustard seeds and cumin seeds.
  3. when the seeds crackle, add urad dal*, ginger, chana dal*, red chillies and green chillies, fry for 2 minutes.
  4. Add curry leaves and fry for 1 minute and turn off the fire.
  5. Add this seasoning to rice-curd mixture and mix well.
  6. Transfer it in a serving dish and garnish with coriander leaves
*The roasted dal feels somewhat hard while eating, if you wish you can soften it by soaking dals in plain water (for almost 1/2 hrs.) before following the recipe step.
