Curd Rice – A Bowl of Comfort

Curd rice is the traditional dish of South India. A simple combination of curd and rice, this healing superfood is a natural probiotic for the gut and a natural coolant for your digestive system. Adding mustard seeds to the tempering with curry leaves and anti-inflammatory spices boosts its nutritional profile. While you relish it, ensure you do not overdo it. Eat it mindfully in the right quantity.

For tempering:

  • Chop the coriander leaves and ginger. Set aside.
  • Heat a pan with coconut oil and add the ingredients to temper.
  • Let the mustard seeds crack and the urad dal turn brown. Add the curry leaves, and ginger now and fry for a minute. Switch off the flame. Keep aside.
  • Wash and peel the carrots. Grate and set them aside.
  • Now add the A2 curd and ghee to the cooked rice. Mix well.
  • Then add the grated carrots, coriander leaves, and the tempered items.
