Curd Rice
Ingredients
Rice -1/2 cup
( Cook the rice with 3 cups of water & little salt).
Butter-2tsp
Warm milk-1/4 cup
Thick curd-3/4 to 1 cup
Tempering
Oil-1tsp
Mustard -1/2tsp
Chopped green chillies-2
Grated ginger-1/4tsp
Curry leaves-few
Hing-1/4tsp
Method
Once your rice is cooked,allow it to cool a bit,add milk & butter.
Mash the rice well & keep it aside.Heat oil in a pan & temper it with above ingredients.
Pour this tempering into the rice & add the curd to the warm rice.
Mix everything well,garnish it chopped coriander leaves.
Serve the curd rice with any pickle you prefer.

Note:
a) Do not add curd to hot rice,make sure its warm.
b) If serving for any party adding fruits gives a great look for your curd rice.I prefer to add pomegranate,grapes,raisins,grated carrot,bits of raw mango & grated cucumber.
Do not add these in advance,add them just before serving.
c) While tempering cashew nuts can also be added.
e) Milk is added to avoid sourness when packing it for a lunch box.
f) Curd rice can be served warm or cold.
g) Instead of green chillies some people add crushed mor milagai or dry red chillies.
h) For a rich curd rice always use whole milk curd,if you are using fat free curd then add 1 or 2 tbsp of sour cream.While preparing for partys i always use sour cream.
