Curd Rice is a very simple and easy lunch option.It is very good for the summer months as it cools your body.
Bland and boring ..yes that's what i used to think of curd rice or thairu saadam.
But yesterday it changed.
Yesterday i wanted to prepare a quick lunch and go out shopping( well had to prepare lunch as Navin would come home for lunch from office..advantage of having rented a house just next to office)..so cos of this quick lunch thing i decided on curd rice.But i did not want to make the ordinary curd rice as i honestly don't like it so much.. So i checked out on the blog that i am totally in love with - Edible Garden . I was sure there will be some different recipe there and of course , the blog did not disappoint me.There were two different recipes.Since i had most of the ingredients of both recipes i decided to combine the two.
It came out very well and Navin also liked it. Was a little apprehensive of that .
Curd/Yoghurt - almost 1 1/2 to 2 cups
Pomegranate- i used seeds from half a pomegranate
Cucumber grated - 1 small size cucumber/ around 5 tablespoons
Green Chilli - 2
Ginger grated-1 tablespoon
Coriander leaves- a bunch
Salt to taste
1 tablesppon oil
1 tablespoon mustard seeds
Mash the boiled rice a little and add all ingredients except oil and mustard seeds.Mix well.Keep aside.
In a small pan or kadai splutter the mustard seeds and add to rice and mix.
Your curd rice is ready to serve. Now isn't that quick ?
Well it was fast and easy to jot it down here too!!!
So enjoy !!!!
