CURD RICE

Curd rice is one of the popular recipe of South India. Some people don't complete their meals without having curd rice at the end meals. In some temples the curd rice is served as a prasadam too. Woo i can't just imagine because it has very special taste when it served in banana leaves. There are lots of various preparation for curd rice. This is one of them that i learnt from my mom when she used to fill my lunch box during school and collage days. I just luv it...
INGREDIENTS.

1 cup Rice.

2 1/2 cup water.

6 tbs Curd. (Add if more curd required)

2 tbs Milk.

1 tsp Mustard seeds.

1 tsp Chopped Ginger

1 Chopped Green chillies.

1/2 tsp Jeera.

Curry leaves few.

Salt to taste.

GARNISH.

Garted carrots.

Chopped coriander.

METHOD.

Pressure cook rice until its soft and mushy. Let the rice be cool.

Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds and jeera. Let them pop. Later add ginger, green chillies , curry leaves and fry for few seconds. Add cooked rice and salt in to it and mix it . Add curd and milk and remove from the flame.

Once done u can see rice absorbing curd and milk and lastly it becomes creamy and delicious.

Garnish with grated carrots and coriander leaves.

My granny used to add green grapes for a sweet taste. Thats too is awesome.
