CURD RICE RECIPE
A perfect south Indian meal will never end up without this simple curd rice. Even whenever we have potluck with our friends, apart from whatever i make the job of making curd rice is usually assigned to me only. And i can happily say all the kids of my dear friends love my curd rice. I thought of posting this recipe of how to make curd rice for a long time but somehow it got postponed. So under the request of all my friends i am posting this thayir sadam recipe.

INGREDIENTS(SERVES 2-3)

RICE(UNCOOKED) 1/2 CUP
MILK 1 CUP
YOGURT |CURD 1 CUP
SALT AS NEEDED

curd rice

METHOD:

  • Pressure Cook the rice by adding 1 and 1/2 cup of water.
  • When done mash the rice nicely with the back of the spoon.
step 1 step 2
  • When it is slightly warm add milk to this. I usually add the cold milk but if you want you can add warm milk too.
  • Mash it nicely and mix it up nicely with the rice. I feel clean hands will do this job perfectlySecret telling smile
step 3 step 4
  • When it is completely cool add the yogurt to this and mix it up smoothly without any lumps. Add salt to this.
step 5 step 7
  • Heat a pan, add oil and throw in the mustard seeds and add the chopped green chilli, curry leaves asafoetida and lastly the coriander leaves.
  • Ensure that the coriander leaves and curry leaves are chopped finely. Chop the green chilli into big pieces. I will discard this after mixing with rice.
  • Add this to the curd rice.
step 9 step 10
  • If adding cashew nuts chop them finely and add it raw. Do not fry them in oil.

step 12

  • Mix it well and take out the green chillies. If you wish you can temper with some grated ginger too.
  • Serve it with any pickle of your choice. We had with Raw mango pickle.

Curd rice 1
Note:

  1. Never add the yogurt when the rice and milk mixture is warm.
  2. I prefer to add full cream milk to the rice as it gives a creamy texture.
  3. My aunty always add a dollop of butter while mixing the rice.
  4. You can add raw mango bits and finely chopped carrots to make it more yummy.
  5. My kids love to have with pomegranate and if i have it in hand  i usually mix it with the rice at the end.
  6. Adjust the quantity of milk and yogurt according to the consistency, for curd rice.

Made this dish today.. It came out very well.. Everybody at home loved it..adding whole cream milk was a great idea.. It gave a creamy texture to the rice and also enhanced it's taste. . A great summer dish for the kids.

Hi Jeyashri, I'll be entertaining few guests this weekend at my place. When can I prepare this dish so it wouldn't turn sour by the time it's on the table for dinner…

Reply
jeyashri suresh March 17, 2015 - 1:01 am

Hi Sadhana, You can make it in advance but put in the refrigerator till you serve. Just before serving add little milk to this (as it may be bit thick after keeping in the fridge) and mix well and keep it on the table after you start serving the main course
