Curd Rice Recipe

Curd Rice is a South Indian dish that combines rice, yoghurt, and aromatic spices that have been beautifully tempered! It’s simply delicious and refreshing, and is definitely a great idea to use rice.


200g Kohinoor Gold Basmati Rice
1 large cup water
400g yoghurt
120ml milk
10 curry leaves
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp grated ginger
1 tsp crushed garlic
2 dried chillies
2 tbsp oil


  • Rinse the rice and soak for 30 minutes.
  • After soaking, add to a sauce pan and add the water. The water height should be 1 digit higher than the rice.
  • Put the saucepan on high heat and when it starts to boil, turn the heat to low and put a lid on. Steam for 12 minutes.
  • Once steamed, take a fork and crush the rice grains slightly.
  • Allow the rice to cool in a bowl.
  • Whisk together the yoghurt and milk with salt and add the yoghurt mixture to the rice and mix well.
  • In a frying pan, add the oil on a very high heat.
  • When hot, add the mustard seeds until they start to pop.
  • Add the ginger, garlic, curry leaves, and chillies.
  • When you can smell the spices and the curry leaves are crispy, add to the rice mixture and fold in.
  • Leave the rice to completely cool and serve with tasty chutneys.
