Curd Rice is truly comfort food! Of South Indian origin, it tastes great with just a pickle or chutney and also with a daal (lentils) or meat dish.


  • 3 tbsps vegetable/canola/sunflower cooking oil
  • 1 cup rice
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 cup sour yogurt
  • 5-6 urry leaves
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 3 dry red chillies
  • Coriander leaves to garnish


  • Wash the rice well and put in a pressure cooker with the water. Cook till done - cook first on a hig flame till you hear the first whistle, then simmer and allow 1 more whistle. Keep aside for an hour or two.
  • Mix the yogurt in the rice and add salt to taste.
  • Heat the oil in a small pan and add the mustard seeds, curry leaves and dry red chillies. Cook till the chillies are almost black.
  • Add this mix to the rice and stir well.
