  • 1 Cup Cooked Rice
  • ¼ Cup Milk Boiled & Cooled
  • 1 Cup Curd (Plain Yogurt)
  • ½ tsp Salt Adjust As Needed

For Tempering

  • 1 tsp Oil
  • 1 tsp Mustard Seeds
  • 1 tsp Split Urad Dal (Optional)
  • 2 Green Chili chopped
  • Few Curry Leaves
  • 1 tsp Ginger chopped
  • a Pinch Asafoetida (Asafetida / Hing)


Let's start with Tempering

  • Pour the oil in the pan and add the mustard seeds, once the mustard seeds begins to sputter add the spilt urid daland fry till it becomes golden brown color.
  • Now add hing , chopped ginger and green chilli and fry for a while
  • To this add chopped curry leaves and fry for sometime. Remove the pan from the flame.

Let's start making the Curd Rice

  • Now add cooked rice and pour the milk and curd and mix the rice thoroughly.
  • Add salt according to your taste and give a good mix
  • Now the tasty Curd rice is ready to serve.


  1. For packing curd rice for travel, use more milk and less curd to prevent curd rice becoming sour. I would recommend  to add milk fully and add only 1 tablespoon of curd. 
  2. If we add milk and very little curd to hot rice the rice will not become much sour later when we eat.
