Carrot Curd Rice

Curd rice with a twist... I was bored making usual curd rice.. I had leftover carrot for longtime in my fridge..Idea....Carrot in curd rice.. nice addition + healthy food...I gave it a try..It tasted so good...


1 cup rice
1 cup milk
3 cup yogurt
2 tbsp butter
salt to taste


2 tbsp oil
3 green chillies or red chillies
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp urad and chana dhal
curry leaves
1 pinch asofoetida/Hing (perungayam)
2 carrots grated


In pressure cooker, add washes rice, 1 cup milk and 3 cups of water. The reason for adding more water is to get mushy rice. Add salt in the rice. Cover and cook for two whistles. Remove from heat..Keep the cooker under cold tap water to release the pressure immediately. Make sure all the pressure is released... Remove the whistle to see if the pressure is fully released. Open the cooker and transfer the contents to serving bowl. Add butter to it and mix well. Add yogurt(if u like sour taste add Indian home made yogurt) and mix well. Adjust salt.

Heat oil in a pan and do the seasoning. Add chopped redchillies and hing. Fry for few minutes. Add grated carrot and fry for 5 mts. Don't over cook carrot. It has to be crunchy... Remove from heat, add to the yogurt rice... Serve hot or cold with pickle...Yum Yum..
Once again, Thanks akal for passing me the award "U R A SWEET"....
