South Indian Style Curd Rice Recipe
Curd rice is a staple food in South of India. No meal is complete without some serving of it. South Indians love to end their meal with this. I, on the other hand, have it as my whole meal. A bowl full of curd rice is good enough for my lunch, especially during summers.
Whenever I am going out for a restaurant review or out for dinner with my friends/family I make sure to have this for lunch at home. This keeps my tummy light and gives me more room to eat out 😉 I like to go light for lunch and prefer dishes like Masala Khichdi, Lemon Rice, Tomato Rice, Garlic Rice, Jeera Rice, Vegetable Rice pair it with Cucumber Raita, Italian flavoured vegetable-pepper raita

Mix boiled/steamed rice with curd, milk and salt. Add tempering prepared with oil, whole red chilli, mustard seeds, cumin seeds, asafetida, urad dal, green chilli and curry leaves.

Adjust the consistency as per your taste. Make sure to use nice, thick and creamy curd/yoghurt for this recipe.
This recipe requires slightly mashed and over cooked rice. Add 3 times of water instead of 2 while cooking rice for this recipe.

I personally like kolam or basmati tukdi for this recipe. However, you can use any leftover rice as well for making this recipe.
