Curd quinoa recipe | South Indian style curd quinoa recipe | Dahi quinoa – Healthy curd quinoa recipe with full video in Tamil and step by step pictures.

Quinoa is a healthy grain loaded with protein and it is gluten-free too. We can make a lot of dishes using quinoa. It is a healthy alternative to rice. I started incorporating quinoa into my diet 2 years back. Of course, there are lots of Indian millets which has amazing health benefits. I do take Indian millets like Ragi, Varagu, or Samai which are easily available in Indian shops in Hongkong.

Curd rice | Thayir sadam, fondly called Thachi mammu (slang)is the most common one in South Indian houses. Most of us cannot end our meal without eating curd rice. I have posted 2 versions of curd rice in Jeyashris kitchen. Also, we have millet curd rice and curd poha recipe too.

A few weeks back, I posted a lunch meal on my Instagram reels. Many of them asked for the curd quinoa recipe after seeing the reels. I first thought I will make reels, but then I realized I have never posted any Quinoa recipe in Jeyashris kitchen. Though I make quinoa adai, and quinoa dosa often, I never took an initiative to post those recipes in Jeyashris Kitchen.

Why curd rice turns hard after sometime

Answering this common question, always ensure the right consistency has to come with the addition of milk. The curd is just to top it up and this will help to retain the right consistency without getting solidified. So always use thick yogurt and ensure the milk is not too watery. It is ok to use low-fat milk but ensures not to add any water.

We can pair curd rice with any pickle or thokku of your choice. The most popular accompaniments to curd rice | curd quinoa are Maavadu, Mango thokku, Tomato pickle, lemon pickle, Avakkai pickle, and Instant Raw mango pickle. Also Thakkali thokku, kothamalli thokku and Molaga thokku recipe.
