In South India, the Kheer and mithai are served at the start of a meal. It is the Curd Rice that comes at the end, as a flavourful and soothing finish to a traditional spread. At the same time, it is also a comforting one-dish meal that is satiating and refreshing, with its cool flavour and homely aroma.


Many people consider Curd Rice to be the best dish to carry along to school, work or travel. Easy to make, this wholesome dish is made by mixing rice with curds and tempering it with mustard and green chillies. Allow the rice to cool slightly before adding the curds, to avoid the curds from splitting.


Plain curd rice can be had accompanied with Lemon Pickle or Mango Pickle .

You could add some chopped ginger. Also sprinkle some pomegranates to give some crunch & colour.

Mam, I have tried this recipe it was wonderfully made but the lentils were hard. Please suggest whether I should boil it first or add them when preparing.

   Hi Bhavesh, If curd rice had immediately after is has been tempered, it will be hard.. Make sure to keep it refrigerator at least for 1 hour or more, it will soften.
