Curd Rice - Daddojanam




Rice --- ½ Cup (125 ml)
Water --- 1 cup (250 ml)
Curd --- 1 cup (adjust it )
Oil --- 1  tbsp
½ tbsp Channa Dal
½ tbsp Urad Dal
¼ tbsp Mustard Seeds
Curry Leaves --- a few
2 tbsp finely chopped Ginger
4 Green Chillies chopped finely
Coriander Leaves --- a few (chopped)
Asafoetida - 1 pinch


Wash the rice with water and Add twice the water to the rice.Cook in a cooker till done.
 Let it cool, but not too cold as it doesn't mix well with the curd

Add curd and enough salt to the rice and mix well.
 It should be semi-consistent as shown below

Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a pan (it takes less oil for this recipe) and when it is hot, add finely chopped ginger and green chillies and fry for 2min.

Now add asafoetida. This gives nice flavour and taste to the rice and fry for 30 sec

 Now add red chillies, chana dal, mustard seeds, cashew nuts (optional- I add to enhance the taste) and mix well and fry for couple of minutes or till mustard seeds splutter
Now add chopped coriander and curry leaves and mix well.
Fry till the raw smell of coriander disappears and switch off the heat.
Add this seasoning to the rice mixture and mix well!
 Simple yet very tasty curd rice is ready. 
 This can be offered as Naivedhyam to Lord Shiva and Shri Shiridi Sai baba
