Curd Rice/Mosranna


My Little Daughter Loves Curd Rice and So does her Anu(Dad) and So does her Dad's Dad!.... May be The family Love!
And at my mom's place all are not such a Lover of it! Whereas Anu and me Love eating Dahi/yogurt with Sugar and sometimes sugar and rice flakes. And Amma with just salt and my brother doesnt like it even! 
I have not at all feasted on Curd Rice anytime till the Last year. Somehow I made it someday in 2012 as i was short of vegetables and my rice had got sticky.... Don't know if it was the taste or the yogurt we get here made it Super Yummy!
And The love for it has increased so much that i make it atleast once a week.Its such a confort food and I wonder why i never loved it so much(may be because of the dahi we got in India or what??). I add pomegranate to it as Little M loves them too(u can see in one pic where she picks one of them while I click).
Its Healthy and Kids will surely love it when u add Pom Pom (pomegranate) in it!

Here Is what we Need to make Curd Rice Delicious:

1 cup white rice, washed, cooked till soft and lightly mashed
3 cups fresh curd/yogurt
2 green chillies, chopped 
Chopped coriander for garnish
Few pomegranate seeds for garnish (optional)

Tempering/Tadka:
2 tsps oil
1/2 tsp mustard
1/2 tsp black gram dal
1/2 tsp channa dal
8-10 curry leaves
1/4 tsp asafoetida/hing
Salt to taste


Method:
Mix the yogurt and salt with the cooled cooked rice. Mix well.
 Add chopped ginger and green chilies. Mix with the curd rice.

 Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds and let them splutter. Add the black gram dal,channa dal and allow to brown a bit then add curry leaves. Add asafoetida and turn off heat and immediately add to the curd rice. Stir the tempering into the rice and mix. Adjust salt if required. If the curd rice consistency is too thick, add a little bit of water and mix.
 Garnish with coriander leaves and pomegranate seeds. Serve chilled or at room temperature with pickle.
