My hubby will enter the kitchen very rarely. When its the time for him to cook, normally he will try something new! Once, when I was not there @ home for few days, he had prepared Curd Rice by adding chopped fruits and vegetables for his lunch box. He liked it a lot and prepared once again when I was back to home. Curd rice was really good it was the time for appreciation! <:-P
Whenever I prepare this curd rice, he will through a dialogue - 'It's ok, but not up-to my standards!' What can I say? I have to admit it simply. Because, the all the copyrights for this dish belongs to him!! (*)
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooked rice (take 1 1/4 cup rice for cooking)
Carrot - half
Granny smith apple - half (tastes good only with sour apple)
Green chillies - 2
Ginger - 1 inch
Turmeric - 1/4 spoon
Red chilli powder - 1/4 spoon (optional)
Thick curd - 1 bowl
For seasoning: oil, urad dal, mustard seeds
Grate the carrot and keep aside. Chop the apple finely.
Spread the cooked rice in a plate and let it get cool down completely.
In a vessel, combine the rooked rice, curd, crushed ginger, salt, grated carrot and finely chopped apple and red chilli powder. Add little water, if required. Adjust the taste according to your preference.
Now, you need to do the seasoning part! Heat oil in a pan, add cashews, urad dal, mustard seeds and turmeric. Once it splutters, add chopped green chillies and curry leaves.
Pour the seasoning on the curd rice and mix it well.
You can add few drops of lime juice if the curd is not that sour and tangy. Please note that this is purely optional!
