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 handΒ  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.

  1. Yeah agreed yummy and also very very healthy. Good food for everybody right from those who don't have teeth…toddlers to those who have lost their teeth and can't suffer spices and more. :))

  2. 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.

  3. 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…

    • 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
