Curd Rice – a creamy, delicious treat for hot summers. A perfect summer recipe with step-wise pictures. Take it on a trip or in your lunch box!
So if you are making Pulihora or Mango Rice, it is a must to make some creamy Curd Rice to go with it. This is one recipe that’s underrated to the core because it is so simple to make. But, have you ever tasted curd rice that’s gone sour? It’s not so pleasant isn’t it?! Although I love Daddojanam/Thayir Sadham, I cant stand a badly made one. It is really easy to put it together. After all, you just need cooked rice and curd to make this. But every household probably makes it differently and what I am sharing here is how I make it at home.
Daddojanam is Andhra style Curd Rice recipe and it has a few assorted spices apart from the regular ingredients. I love using pomegranate pearls in my curd rice – its adds a mild sweetness to the rice, along with the texture. I also add finely chopped ginger and green chillies, which add the much required spiciness. Now, I wouldn’t make curd rice ever without curry leaves and fresh coriander leaves. I always prefer using homemade curd full cream milk that’s fresh. If you are taking this on a trip or for your lunch box, it is better to add some milk so that the curd doesn’t turn sour. Check out the notes for more information.
